Farm Market Sales Person

Bramble Hill Farm

Job Start Date: to be determined

Bramble Hill Farm is looking for a Farm Market SALES person to help us expand our booth at the Truro Farmers Market!

Currently we attend the Truro Market every second week, but we would like to be there full time.

Because of the location of the farm it makes the most sense that the ideal person for the job lives in Pictou County as that person must pick-up produce from the farm in the morning and return to the farm after the market is over.

DETAILS:

-position is for EVERY SECOND SATURDAY year-round (may require extra Saturday here and there)

-requires the use of your own vehicle with paid km from the farm to Truro & return. Hatchback, small truck or van required as all produce fits in coolers.

-hours in the winter are 7:30am to 2pm; summer 6:30am to 2pm = every SECOND SATURDAY

FOR EXAMPLE: winter pick-up at farm at 7:30am, return to farm at 2pm = 6.50 hrs +paid mileage

– $12/hr PLUS salad & fresh veggies during summer months.

REQUIREMENTS:

-outgoing, friendly personality.

-experience handling cash & willingness to learn POS system

-experience in sales is an asset, experience or at least an understanding of how the farmers’ market works is a bonus

-willingness to learn about the farm, our growing methods, our products and be an ambassador for Bramble Hill Farm.

-use of personal cell phone during market hours is not acceptable unless for emergency use.

-pass a RCMP criminal record check

-provide references
