become part of our team
The Co-operative Farms is regularly on the look out for keen, committed individuals to join our team, both at our head office in Manchester and on our farms and packhouses across the UK.
As one of the UK’s largest agricultural employers, there are a wide range of different roles within our business and you don’t necessarily need to have an agricultural background to work for us.
As part of The Co-operative Group, we have a longstanding reputation in its commitment to employee welfare. We see our people as our most valued resource and as such, we take the time to offer support to them and meet their individual development and training needs.
Working collaboratively was the most significant element that made this business stand out, say judges for the Food and Farming Awards
Being part of The Co-operative Group also affords our employees broader career options and opportunities for progression. As part of a co-operative – an organisation which is member owned and democratically run – we have values and principles that set us apart from other businesses and these are clearly reflected in the way we treat our employees. We seek to be fair and open in our relations with people and we actively involve our employees in constantly reviewing and improving the way we work.
Whether you’re part of our finance department or out managing one of our farms, working for The Co-operative Farms is a varied and rewarding experience. At the forefront of modern agriculture, we employ the latest techniques and top of the range equipment, and constantly have to be one step ahead in this fast-changing industry.
We’re a welcoming and friendly business and quite literally ‘down to earth’. Working at the front line of the food chain, the work we do has a very tangible outcome and seeing our own products being sold in our food stores brings a great sense of satisfaction.
