Churchtown Farm is a very successful family run flower farm; we grow scented flowers and post them direct to our customers throughout the year. The farm is situated on St Martin's in the beautiful Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. It has a permanent population of 140, a general store, a pub, a hotel (summer only) and a fish and chip cafe. So you must be happy to live in a small but very friendly, isolated community.
Most seasonal staff come to us for around 6 months starting in either the spring or autumn, although there are always exceptions. However, over the years many of our seasonal staff have enjoyed living and working on St. Martin's so much that they have extended their contracts for a year or more.
The farm is organised into three areas, some jobs will cover more than one area
1. 'Outside' - Flower picking and a variety of jobs around the farm including cultivations, gardening and looking after our small beef herd.
2. 'Shed' - Packing flowers and preparing flowers and materials for packing and tying,
3. 'Office' - Dealing directly with customers taking their orders via the phone and internet and other office based tasks. Complete fluency in written and spoken English is essential.
