One-of-a-kind job offer: growing daffs in Ireland’s rolling green hills

DUBLIN, Ireland: Time to swap the Netherlands’s wide-open polder land for Ireland’s rolling hills, lush fields, friendly atmosphere of pubs and charm of locals? Elmgrove Farm in Gormanston, County Dublin, currently has a unique vacancy for Flower Production Manager.

The job description reads as follows:

“Elmgrove Farm grows a range of flowers across 40Ha located 40km north of Dublin city centre.

The main crop is Narcissus, from which flowers and bulbs are exported across Europe.

The farm also grows other flowers and foliage for its online farm shop. While most of the flowers are field-grown, cold poly-tunnels are also used to extend the growing season.

We are now hiring a flower production manager responsible for planting, growing, harvesting and packing our flowers.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to manage a team and experience in machinery and quality control systems.

This is a full-time role with an attractive salary to match the successful candidate’s experience. Accommodation can be provided.
