Vacancies available from late April with our UK growers


Money doesn’t grow on trees, but fruit does – and during these challenging times, our growers need additional, dependable workers to help get berries from our plants to your tables. Our growers are hiring pickers to ensure we continue to get our berries from farm to folk at a time when healthy, fresh food is ever more important.

BerryWorld wants to connect you, the Great British workforce, with our great British growers across the UK, to ensure we can continue to bring berries to homes across the nation this summer.

To get our fruit to retailer shelves, many talented individuals are required. Fruit pickers in particular are essential in this, since strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries all need to be handled with care. They can bruise easily and ensuring our fruit reaches our consumers in the best possible condition, whilst minimising waste is of paramount importance to us and our suppliers. Fruit pickers need to therefore be dependable, hard-working and diligent to pick fruit at pace without waste. Most of our fruit is on table top, which means it is waist height, so pickers can enjoy a day working out in the elements without having to consistently bend down.

We hope this opportunity provides individuals around the country a chance to serve the nation at this difficult time.

As COVID-19 continues to cause disruption to our day-to-day lives, we want to reassure any applicants that the health and well-being of all operational employees working across our grower network is of paramount importance. Every measure is being taken to safeguard all employees and further information about individual site measures can be shared on application.
