Working at G’s
Our seasonal work is mostly manual planting, picking and harvesting of salad and vegetable crops, which involve a considerable amount of bending, walking and lifting.
We work outdoors in all weathers and the jobs tend to be physically demanding.
It requires you to be physically fit, on your feet and moving all day, self-disciplined with a repetitive task, quick, and able to work full days.
We will place you safely in fields, working 2m away from other people or where this is more difficult we have introduced physical barriers in work stations to provide protection and have strict hygiene protocols. If transport to the field is required we have reduced the numbers on each bus in order to keep to the 2m distance guideline.
Full induction and training will be given for the job that you will be doing. We will also arrange for you to open a bank account and register with the medical centre.
