Acorn by Synergie is recruiting for Plant Nursery Workers on behalf of their prestigious client, Forestry England

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a uniquely natural environment as an important part of the team, responsible for growing and grading seeds and tree plants, for use in UK forests and across the world!

The nursery has a current annual programme to supply the public forest estate with up to 12 million forest usable trees. A wide range of mainly conifer and some broad leaved species are grown from seed and cuttings to meet this demand. The plant stock is produced both in the open nursery as a bare-root product and also containerised, grown in our poly-tunnel and glasshouse complex. The container nursery also produces up to 1 million rooted cuttings for use on the open nursery.


Your duties will include:

* Taking cuttings
* Lifting seedlings from seedbeds
* Mechanical transplanting
* Netting seedbeds
* Hand-weeding
* Grading young trees into different sizes
* Packaging and checking finished products


Role details:

* Work can take place in all weathers, and involves indoor and outdoor working
* Working independently and as part of a team
* The ability to work in a flexible and adaptable manner is an absolute necessity for this role


Benefits:

* Bonus scheme - in addition to the basic pay rate to encourage
* Alternate Fridays off
* £11.44 per hour, rising to £11.48 per hour after 12 weeks
* Premium overtime pay rates
* Increased holiday entitlement, available after 12 weeks

You will also have access to Acorn Recruitment's fantastic rewards scheme, with cashback offers and vouchers for many high-street names, as well as free-to-enter competitions. You will also have free access to our worker well-being hub.
