Seasonal Work: Tree Seed Collector and Processor

If you enjoy working outside in the natural environment this is the job for you. The main work is collecting tree and shrub seed; the seed you collect will enable thousands of trees to be grown.

You will be collecting berries, cones or pods which are then brought back to our unit in Hadnall. This involves collecting by hand outside in all weathers. Seed is collected from the ground or by climbing ladders. Some travel away may be required. Time is then spent in the unit processing everything that has been collected either by hand or using machinery. You are then caring for the seed by drying it down for storage or mixing it with water and peat to get it ready to send to nurseries to be grown. You will mainly be working as part of a team. Some heavy physical work is involved; for example lifting bags or mixing large batches of seed. Plus dexterous work collecting and cleaning the seed.

The pay is £9.20 per hour for a 8.30am to 5pm day but there is usually plenty of overtime on offer. We can offer basic accommodation on-site.

Please apply as soon as possible as we have numerous places that can be filled from now until December.
