Vacancy: All-round tree nursery assistant

Can you imagine yourself walking in a field, planting new trees or lifting young plants to fulfil customer orders? Then do read on! We have a great job opening for you.

What is the job about?

As all-round nursery assistant at Boomkwekerijen C.A.M. Poppelaars, you have a varied job. One moment you’re working indoors, grading trees or assembling orders. The next you find yourself outdoors, in the field, driving a tractor or on foot, for making root-balls, lifting plants or planting new trees. 

You’ll be working with a close-knit team of hard-working colleagues, who enjoy having fun too. You usually work Monday to Friday, from 7:30 to 17:00, but if it’s busy, we work longer hours. 

What do we expect from you?

  • You like learning new things
  • You understand plants: you’re a fast learner and you like to think one step ahead
  • You have a category B driving licence 
  • You have a tractor driving licence (or are willing to get one)
  • It’s great if you already have some agricultural experience. If you don’t, but you would like to switch to our flourishing sector – feel free to apply! 
  • You’re available for 40 hours a week
  • You live in the Breda area

What do we have to offer you?

  • Working in the great outdoors. You’ll easily walk those 10,000 steps a day!
  • You’ll be working with the latest techniques and equipment
  • Varied work, you’re an all-rounder, after all
  • Plenty of typical Brabant fun and humour
  • Colleagues you can depend on
  • A salary in line with the Open Cultivation Industry CLA, reflecting your age and experience
