Customer Recruiter – Riverford Organic Farms

Customer Recruiter

Buckfastleigh, Devon

Part-time, 20 hours per week Salary: £8919.22 per annum

Closing date:  22/12/16

About Riverford:

We’re mad about organic veg. It’s at the core of everything we do. We love to grow it, pack it into boxes and deliver it to customers’ doorsteps around the UK. This takes a lot of brilliant people, with a range of skills and knowledge.

Riverford began in 1986, with a few acres of veg, a wheelbarrow and a beaten up 2CV for deliveries.  We’ve grown into a successful e-commerce business, with four farms, three packhouses, a fleet of vans and drivers, a wholesalers, butchery, organic restaurant and pub. We employ people across many  areas including IT, Logistics, Sales, HR, Finance and Marketing (and more besides).  Our culture and values set us apart from other businesses. Riverford is a friendly, informal place to work, with a passionate, entrepreneurial spirit. We’re committed to providing a fair deal for growers, customers and staff.

The Role:

We are now looking for a Customer Recruiter who thrives on making sales to come and join the Riverford team at our farm near Buckfastleigh. The majority of the time you will be on the phone; talking to potential new customers (warm leads) about the benefits of ordering from us or talking to customers that have stopped ordering from us, trying to find out the reasons why they have left us and working with them to find a product that encourages them back to a regular order.  This is a great opportunity for someone who genuinely enjoys sales to sell a product which is ethical, healthy and fun.

You will need to be engaging over the phone and use your great communication skills and ability to overcome objections, to explain just how tasty and fresh our veg boxes are.  Your knowledge of the stories behind the product will mean that people want to try our products and order from us; there is a passionate community of growers, franchisees, customers, staff and cooks all involved with Riverford which creates a great buzz about our products and our customers love receiving their veg boxes straight to their door.  You may have worked in an outbound role before, or in face to face sales; what’s important to us is that you are able convey what is great about our products to our customers and that you have an appetite for closing sales.  The position is mainly telephone-based, but there may also be some opportunities to work at farm open days, shows and events, and on door-to-door work, spreading the word about Riverford and signing up new customers.

Closing date: 22nd December 2016

Job Description

Jobs in Organic Food – Honeyrose Bakery




Honeyrose Bakery is the home of organic handbaking – want to join our family ?

liseMy name is Lise Madsen,  originally from Denmark, but living and working in London since 1994. I am the proud founder and managing director of Honeyrose Bakery, an organic wholesale bakery based in the Park Royal industrial estate in North London. We are growing so quickly that I sometimes forget to look back at what we have achieved, so thanks for giving me the chance to do so now for you.

I suppose my story starts where my life began, in the wholesome Danish countryside. I could open our front door and in two hops over my mother’s organic vegetable and fruit garden be straight into the fir forests which went for a couple of miles, directly to the sea. One of my first jobs was at a seaside hotel where I managed to convince them, at 15, to let me make desserts in their kitchens. That blossomed my love for fine baking and I decided that was the life for me. I did a bit of research, found Paris to be the capital of pastry, and Gaston Lenotre the king. So at 18, after my baccalaureate, I boarded a train for Paris to join the Ecole Lenotre where I did my apprenticeship as pastry chef and then moved into project management in their catering and food business. I worked there for 5 years and learnt that pure, unadulterated baking craft skills can happily survive in a business employing 1050 people.  With that experience in my pocket I made my way to London and continued working in food and food management.  Read more…

Jobs in Organic Food – Organix




Due Diligence Technologist

Part time Procurement Category Manager

In 1992 Organix was founded by Lizzie Vann who believed that it was a business that not only could, but should, change society for the better.

We were founded with a vision to create a world where healthy nutritious food was a real choice for everyone by doing three things:

  • creating great food
  • empowering parents
  • challenging the government and food industry

When our first baby foods went on the shelves it was a proud moment. It was organic, tasty and had labelling parents could understand. This set a benchmark and it’s been the way we’ve worked ever since. We want to ensure that what we make, how we sell it and what we say about it creates better choices for children’s health.

Organic farming doesn’t just mean tasty foods. It promotes good standards of animal welfare and protects the environment too. Our organic farmers work with nature to make sure their soil stays healthy. That means restricted use of pesticides and no artificial fertilisers.

All of our ingredients have been grown according to strict organic guidelines and our foods are certified by the Soil Association. This leading UK charity campaigns for planet-friendly organic food and farming. Like us, they believe that healthy soil means healthy people.
