MorePeople are delighted to be working exclusively with One Harvest as we help them find a Farm Manager to join their team in Richmond, Tasmania.

For three generations, One Harvest have been supplying consumers with fresh, healthy, vegetable-based products from sources across Australia such as freshcut salads, delicatessen salads and fresh cooked, ready to eat beetroot products. Today, they have operations all over Australia, with four state-of-the-art processing sites in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Bairnsdale (Victoria) operating 24/7. The farm in Tasmania is key in ensuring these sites stay in supply.

The farm in Tasmania is a relatively new baby leaf operation that spans 250 acres, 150 of which is intensive cropping. There are plans to expand the farm and in the past 18 months alone the farm has already doubled in size.

Based in Richmond, you will not be far from the island's capital, Hobart, meaning that you can make the best of both country and city life.

Managing, motivating and developing your team so that they perform to the best of their ability.

The person:

We are looking for candidates who are enthusiastic, go-getting and hungry for experience. You will have worked in a similar position before, however, you do not necessarily have to have worked with baby leaf crops as you will be fully supported by One Harvest as you are given the training and development you will need to succeed.

Be proactive, ambitious and passionate about growing.
