Growing Communities, Hackney, is recruiting four volunteer Apprentice Growers. The apprenticeship runs from the beginning of April to the end of September. Three apprentices will work one day a week and the fourth will work one and a half days. In addition there will be monthly evening tutorials. You will work with our Grower or Assistant Grower, learning all aspects of running our Urban Market Gardens.

We are looking for enthusiastic people who are keen to learn about growing food in a sustainable way, and who enjoy working outdoors and with other people. We particularly welcome applications from sectors of the community at risk of social exclusion.

They will be shortlisted for interview based on how well they fit the Person Specification, so make sure you read this carefully and respond to it fully in your covering letter. The deadline for applications is 5pm Wednesday 18th February. We will let people know by Friday 20th whether we would like them to come to interview and the interviews themselves will be held on Thursday 26th February. We will let interviewees know if they have been successful on Friday 27th February.
