|Shillingford Organics is all about growing seasonal, organic vegetables, salad, herbs and fruit to give local people the opportunity to buy great, healthy, freshly harvested produce, which is free from harmful pesticides and chemicals. We keep organic hens, which give us wonderful, tasty, popular organic eggs. Our use of green manures and well-made compost coverings ensure we optimise soil biology.
Our family run farm is located on the outskirts of Exeter near Shillingford Abbot. We have been running an organic vegetable box scheme since 2001. We grow with care and consideration and adopt many methods which encourage a natural balance. We are passionate about wildlife and biodiversity.
The business is faced with the extreme challenge of being commercially viable in a food economy which is globalised and dominated by large scale, highly-mechanised, specialist producers and awash with cheap food. To survive and flourish we have to have efficient systems, be willing to adapt and work effectively together and produce and deliver great produce.
About the opportunity
The delivery driver is a key member of our team. We are looking for an organised, motivated and friendly person who can earn a good income by working effectively and giving great service to our customers. Starting at 5am they will be delivering our vegetable boxes/orders to households mainly in the Exeter area, delivering bulk orders direct to shops, cafes and markets.
There is an incentive scheme based on number of deliveries made. Therefore, it is very much in the interest of the successful applicant that our sales flourish.
We are a small Team and the successful candidate needs to be an excellent Team player, who works with integrity, responsibility and is considerate to others. He or she will have an understanding of running a small business and an interest in marketing and promotion,
a desire to work closely as part of a Team who are passionate about organic growing, ecology, good food and a concern for wider global environmental issues.
