On Line People are pleased to be working with several nationally recognised fruit farms as they approach their busiest time of the year. We have positions at sites across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Positions are seasonal and are expected to begin around end of May 2020 and finish November 2020.

Working hours will be between 06:00am - 16.00pm Monday - Friday and working Saturdays if required. Flexibility is essential as you may need to work additional hours at short notice to meet the demands of the business.

The main duties will include picking/harvesting and packing fruit whilst avoiding cross contamination, planting and crop production, some husbandry, general housekeeping and all other duties as required.

Although a good level of fitness is required, most sites do not require excessive amounts of bending/kneeling as crops are at head-height.

Some sites can offer accommodation in the form of caravans or mobile homes. These include wash rooms, kitchens and clothes washing and drying facilities.

Own transport is essential due to location, shift times and lack of public transport available
