Reference York1784321872

Our client is a growing potato marketing company with on-site potato warehousing, washing and grading facilities.

They require an organised person with initiative, enthusiasm and flexibility to assist our Warehouse Manager in a combination of administration and hands-on QC support for our stored potatoes, specifically intended for major crisp manufacturers.

The key aim of the role is to undertake QC work on our potato crops (washing, test frying, analysing and recording results), as well as assisting the Warehouse Manager to effectively monitor the stored crop, and movements in and out of our stores.

This is an interesting role which will also involve farm visits collecting samples and understanding the food processing industry requirements. As such, we are not necessarily looking for someone with experience in these areas as full and comprehensive training will be given.

We are generally very flexible in terms of hours/days so the role could be somewhere between 20 and 30 hours per week. Mid-September to the end of October is our busiest time so longer hours and some weekend work may be necessary in this busy 6 week window.

Salary £8.75-£10.50 per hours (plus overtime/weekend rates) depending on the candidate 


  • All QC work on our potato stocks – this involves analysis of stocks, sampling, test frying, acrylamide testing and maintaining accurate records of results. (Full training will be provided)

  • Working with Warehouse Manager and Managing Director to co-ordinate activities and crop movements for the current and following weeks

  • Work closely with the Managing Director and Key Account Manager to monitor and react to any issues with the stored crop

  • Work proactively with colleagues at Wolds Produce to identify and resolve any issues

  •  Maintaining paperwork and excel spreadsheets


  • Good numeracy and literacy skills

  • Good time management skills

  • Must have knowledge of excel

  • A full driving licence – some collecting/delivering of potato samples may be required

  • Reliable with good inter-personal skills

  • Ability to use own initiative

  • The nature of your work requires flexibility and you may be required to work very occasional evenings and weekends at busy times

If you are looking for a new challenge, or looking to join a company where you can grow and develop in your career, please apply now with a copy of your up to date CV.

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, if you have not heard from us within 5 working days, please assume your application will not be taken forward in this instance
