YOU 

People describe you as a “hard worker” and “problem solver” and always “willing to go above and beyond”.  You'll be comfortable to work in a variety of roles and have no trouble switching work modes to achieve the outcomes required.   Given the diverse nature of this role, you’ll be flexible and responsible as well as able to work independently. 

You’ll love lists and tasks and being able to follow directions, yet still find ways to add value (no robots please!), improve efficiencies and create ‘wow’ moments for our customers and the team you are part of.

Your time mastery skills, and the ability to prioritise tasks is essential to this role as you are key to the timely, friendly delivery of our products and services to our customers.  

You are fit, healthy and physically strong.  You love being outdoors, putting your heart (and back) into anything from tending the growing plants to loading boxes, making deliveries, setting up a market stall and chatting with the locals.   

You would be keen to work on weekends at Farmers Markets, providing excellent service and knowledge of organics to our loyal customers.   

You are happy working autonomously in a role as well as comfortable working cooperatively as part of a team.  

Your past employers were sad to lose you due to your high level of motivation, strong work ethic and punctuality.
