Can you imagine yourself working at a large, professional farm in East Africa? Where you dedicate yourself day after day, with a team of people, to growing a quality product? And to making sure this product ends up all over the world? If so, you could be our new

Location: East Africa

What kind of job is this?
You start by working at Deliflor Chrysanten and Beekenkamp Plants Ornamentals in Maasdijk for a number of weeks. Deliflor is the largest breeder and propagator of chrysanthemums in the world and Beekenkamp Plants Ornamentals is active in a large range of pot and garden plants. Both are part of the Beekenkamp Group. Why are you starting in the Netherlands? So that you can learn which processes the different cuttings go through and what the role of the production location in East Africa is in this process. With this knowledge you will leave for one of our production locations in East Africa. Currently we produce our cuttings in Uganda and Ethiopia. There you will manage different processes (including the production process) and the cultivation techniques involved in the production of cuttings. You will also identify opportunities for improvement. You work closely together with several other production managers, the local management team and the production staff, and you report directly to the local operations manager.

What are we looking for?
You are a true pioneer. You don’t go for the easy option; you want to be challenged to find creative solutions. Flexibility is one of your key characteristics. You are intensively involved in the cultivation processes of our cuttings, and are therefore fully familiar with things like IPM, crop protection and scouting. Ideally, you have a degree from a university of applied sciences in horticulture (Dutch HBO) or experience with which you can substantiate this knowledge. And of course you consider starting a job at an African farm as a challenge.

What makes you happy?
An adventurous job where no two days are the same. Working in a great team that aims to deliver a top-quality product every day gives you an energy boost. Excellent working conditions and scope for developing your talents are a matter of course.
