Life at SoilEssentials

SoilEssentials are a dynamic and award-winning company who continue to grow and regularly post job vacancies for all areas of the business, looking for new talent to join us.

It is worth remembering we are based in the Angus countryside on a farm and it is therefore crucial to have your own transport. It is also a good idea if you like dogs – as there are one or two that come to work on occasion too!

Life at SoilEssentials is fairly relaxed – in the sense that we don’t micro manage people. There is a high expectation that the skills and abilities a person is employed for include a positive and professional work ethic, a can-do attitude and a natural flair of going that extra mile.

If you like the sound of who we are at SoilEssentials and looking for new horizons, then we’d love to hear from you – current positions are listed below.
