You will be part of a growing site team at Gladsmuir and you will be operating large machinery on a daily basis.

You will be up early with the morning sun and moving grains between sheds. You will be paid weekly for the hours that you have worked the previous week and you will receive £50 per week retention bonus to be paid at the end of harvest up to a maximum of £650 if 13 full weeks worked.
