About the Employer
Premier Seeds Direct was started in 2007 borne out of the frustration with large seed growers, providing limited selections, poor quality and restrictive pricing. The business has developed a great range of products at fair prices and has grown from the kitchen table to a small unit employing 18 people outside Salisbury.
The business has recently undergone a buy out and Phil Redman has taken the lead in the business and is looking to convert the strong foundations into a key competitor in the seed market.
The business has a loyal customer base and a fantastic value proposition so this is an incredibly exciting time to be on board. As a family run business, they have maintained the friendly, family feel as they have grown. They are a small, supportive team who value new ideas.
In addition to a competitive salary, you can look forward to the following:
- Pension Scheme 20 days annual leave (+ 8 bank holidays)
- Casual Dress code
- On-site parking
