Salary: £17,000 as well as occasional overtime paid at time and a half and there is an ‘early start’ allowance.

Our client incorporates the use of multiple laboratory divisions across the UK and has since become the UK’s largest independent provider of analytical data to the Agricultural, Horticultural, Amenity and Environmental sectors. Operating from five locations in the UK, it employs approx. 350 staff, covering all aspects of a company focussed on providing high quality data and first class customer service.

Due to an anticipated increase in sample numbers this Autumn, our client is looking for extra Technicians in the Soil Department to start at 4am or 5am to be involved in the grinding of dry soils or to help to book in fresh soils, break them up into the trays and get them into the drying cabinets or to help extract the dry soils ready for analysis.
