Work For Us
Easter Grangemuir Farm employs approximately 180 seasonal workers through the season employed directly by the farm or from Concordia agency. Our farm is mainly an arable farm growing strawberries, broccoli, potatoes and grain. Our crops are planted and harvested from February to November. If you come to work at Easter Grangemuir as a seasonal worker, it is a hard work, but also a lot of fun.
Once arrived on the farm, you will be accommodated in one of the caravans and will be given the induction in your native language.
In peak season will be three teams. You will be working in a team of maximum 35 people leaded by three supervisors, who will help you to achieve the necessary skills.
All our strawberries are grown in soil under polythene tunnels, 50% on the ground and 50% table tops and coming very soon heated tunnels to extend our berry season.
The work on our farm will be paid under National Living Wage. When picking strawberries, you will be required to pick a targeted number of trays of berries per hour. A bonus is also set allowing workers the opportunity to earn extra. The target and bonus will depend on the quality of the crop, the weather and time of the season.
The accommodation is in fully equipped self-catering mobile homes. Each caravan sleeps 4-6 people. There is also a communal TV/students club where everyone can relax and meet the other people working at the farm. The facilities available include pool table, table tennis, football, barbecue facilities.
Parties and competitions are organised allowing the different cultures and nationalities to mix and new friendships to be made. Bus trips are available to see a bit of Scotland during your work period. Trips organised in the past were to Edinburgh, Stirling Castle and Glasgow.
