Job Details

Business Director | Fresh Produce
Are you seeking a varied role in a diverse farming and fresh produce business? If so, please read on.

Do you enjoy getting stuck in with teams growing new products, sourcing new customers, solving technical issues, building supply chains...and having the autonomy to do all of the above to build a successful business unit?

You'll manage a growing business to further success by looking at new products, new customers and bringing in more processes to aid the business scale.

There will be a bit of everything to cover and it is a very rounded role where no two days will be the same. You'll oversee commercial, procurement, supply chain, technical and growing functions.

The existing directors will be there to support you and to bounce ideas off as required.

The customers cover retailers, wholesalers, foodservice, manufacturing etc. The role would suit someone who could help this customer base grow to maximise the business potential. This could include growing new crops or importing products over the winter.

There will be good days and the, well, not so good...this is fresh produce after all, and crops don't always thrive as expected. You'll need to be able to deal with that and keep a level head to deal with different situations.
