Churchtown Flower Farm on The Isles of Scilly Are Recruiting NOW and are looking for 2 people to join our team for at least 6 months starting ASAP
Come and work on the beautiful Isles of Scilly just off the coast of Cornwall.
We are a very successful, family run flower farm growing scented flowers and sending them direct to our customers through the post all year round. The farm is on the island of St Martin’s where there is a permanent population of 120 with a shop, a pub and a fish chip cafe. So you must be happy to live in a small but very friendly, isolated community.
There are about 16-20 people working at the farm growing and packing flowers and processing orders. The farm works very much as a team, everybody working together to get the job done.
The majority of people who have worked at Churchtown in the past have extended their contracts, come back to work another season or even settled here.

1 flower packer/shed worker– you will be working mainly in the packing shed grading and packing flowers to fulfil orders. At times you may also have to work with the field team, picking flowers, making hay or general gardening.
Experience of similar farm work would be preferable and a clean UK valid driver’s license is essential. A reasonable level of spoken English so that you can follow instructions and ask questions is required.
The positions are for 40hr a week over 5 days and your pay will be £8.21/hr.
Accommodation is provided and there is a statutory deduction of £52.85 a week for this.
Your initial contract will be for 6 months but there is scope for this to be extended.
