Farplants Sales Ltd, one of the leading suppliers of outdoor plants to garden centres across the UK, has an opportunity for an Area Leader to join our highly motivated and professional team at the Farplants Finishing Centre. Our 8000 square metre facility based in Barnham, West Sussex processes and dispatches over 11 million plants per year, all across the U.K.

This critical role will lead a team of operatives to deliver excellence and efficiency in all production related operations across the day shift. A good understanding of process will be a huge advantage, but what is even more important is you.

We are looking for a genuine and authentic candidate who can continue the positive, collaborative, and progressive culture that we have, and who will continue to put our people first. It will be key that you can safely lead your team whilst ensuring the effective and successful day to day operation of your area under the influence of the Area Supervisor.

You will be passionate about delivering the very best quality and achieving targets whilst thriving in a collaborative and often complex environment. You will be eager to strive towards the overall efficiency and success of your area and the Finishing Centre as a whole. You won’t be alone. You will be supported by a team of highly skilled colleagues, Supervisors and Managers who will be keen for you to succeed.

We work on annualised hours meaning during the peak season, the working days will be Sunday-Thursday and will be full day shift. During the lower season, the pattern will change to Monday-Friday, and hours will change to reflect the needs of the business.

On offer is a competitive salary of £23,920.00 per annum plus 21 days holiday entitlement, company pension and life assurance.
