20 jan Field assistant vacancies (position occupied)
Agrolab is a privately owned research organisation that performs field trials. For our field season we are now looking for three assistants in Denmark (Middelfart).
Agrolab is the leading research organisation for registration of pesticides in the EU North Zone and has field stations in Sweden, Denmark, Latvia and Lithuania. Agrolab currently has fourteen full time employees in Denmark, nine in Sweden, four in Latvia and 1 in Lithuania.
We have a large network of farmers in the nearby area of all of our field trial stations, and therefore have a number of options when placing our trials. All to ensure high quality trials to our clients with a good pest occurrence in the requested crop. You can find out more about who we are and what we do at www.agrolab.dk.
We have a good team of employees at Agrolab, with a high spirit and a good sense of humour. During the summer season we need assistants to help us with all the field work, and that is why we are now looking for three assistants in Denmark (Middelfart).
An exciting position where the tasks varies greatly within a working area that is in constant development.
The position will include taking part in the whole field trial cycle – laying out trials, handling chemicals, assessing weeds, fungi and insects in the field, harvesting and handling data. The work is primarily located in the fields and much of the time is spent in transport. Therefore a driver’s licence (B) is a requirement.
You have an interest in fieldwork, are not afraid of hard work and have the possibility to work some overtime/evenings when the need occurs. As a person you are flexible, have a good manner towards others and a positive attitude. You have an education or have started one within biology, agronomy, horticulture, agricultural technology or a similar field. You have the ability to cooperate with others, but can with the right training work independently. Additional driver’s licences (BE, C) and a spraying certificate will further qualify you, but these are not absolute requirements.
All positions are full time, March-September. We would like you to start already in mid-March, but it is also a possibility to start later in the season.
Three positions in Middelfart.
We will be happy to receive your application to firstname.lastname@example.org at the latest February 17th 2017. For any questions about the positions, call Kenneth Sørensen, +45 27 51 63 75.
