Logo: Forestart LtdPropagation Supervisor


Forestart Ltd is the UKs leading supplier of tree and shrub seed to forestry and amenity nurseries. We specialise in supplying seed collected in the UK, and stratifying this to break inherent seed dormancy. We have already established a large area of seed orchards to meet specific market requirements and are currently in the process of further developing these orchards.


Forestart is looking for an enthusiastic horticulturalist to join its expanding business. You will play a vital role in growing our orchards and supplying nurseries with forest reproductive material, giving you the opportunity to make a unique contribution to the forestry industry.


To expand our team we are looking for a person with horticultural knowledge and growing skills to manage our poly-tunnel space and produce the plants destined for our seed orchards, research projects and sales. This will help drive forward Forestart's scientific breeding aims as well as supplying customers with quality material. You will be working in various outdoor environments - growing and grafting plants in poly-tunnels, establishing seed orchards and harvesting propagation material.


This is a physical, hands-on role requiring a person able to lead a team but also be self-motivated and able to maintain the highest level of standards and attention to detail within this commercially focused and expanding production environment. 


A horticultural qualification and spray qualifications are desirable. Salary will be dependent on experience.
