Seed Cleaning Plant Operator- Star City, Saskatchewan
 

Van Burck Seeds is a 4,000 acre seed farm with a Seed Cleaning Plant operation located on-farm. Proud of our 39 years in business, we have 5 long-term employees who contribute to the success of our operation. A small, family-oriented farm, we believe we are successful because we understand that our employees are the backbone of our company. Every employee contributes to the success of our company daily. Our small team is made up of hard working, dedicated, reliable and results-oriented individuals, in which each person is encouraged to identify areas of improvement and opportunity. Being a small company, we are able to have open discussion frequently, listen to all of our employees and incorporate required change quickly.

We are currently inviting applicants to join our team as a Seed Cleaning Plant Operator. This is an exciting, variety-packed position with lots of growth potential. In this full time position you will be working on-farm in our Seed Cleaning plant. You will work independently in the plant, but will have daily interactions with the owner, other employees and customers. This position offers a variety of tasks, including loading containers, operating large trucks and equipment maintenance. You are guaranteed a minimum of 2120 hours per year, with longer and shorter hours per week based on seasonal requirements. As this is a farm-based operation, you will also contribute to the success of the farm during harvest and seeding. We meet regularly for open discussion with all employees and as a valued member of our operation your input will also be appreciated on any challenges and opportunities facing our operation.

The Position:  80% of your time will be in Seed Cleaning. Specific responsibilities include:

 

·         Operating seed cleaners, colour sorter, and grain loading / unloading equipment

·         Unloading and loading trucks

·         Loading containers

·         Maintaining cleanliness of plant

·         Operating trucks 

·         Providing customer service

 20% of your time will be spent working on the Seed Farm:

·         Operating farm equipment

·         Contributing to day-to-day farm operations during peak times

 To be considered, you will have good work ethic and be an open communicator. You enjoy working as part of a team, but also have the ability, determination and initiative to work independently. You are a self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced environment, but appreciates seasonal slow-downs and know how to manage time and tasks effectively. You are mechanically-inclined and have proven problem solving abilities. As this position will involve some computerized equipment operation, some computer knowledge with the ability and desire to learn and adapt is important.  You will have a solid understanding of agriculture, and enjoy the rural and farming way-of -life. A 1A license with clean drivers abstract would be considered an asset.

This position offers:

 

·         Opportunity to work within a team environment

·         Growth opportunities

·         Opportunity to make a significant contribution to the success of the company

·         Opportunity for personal skill development

·         Opportunity for further education in seed cleaning and handling

·         Competitive salary with bonus opportunities
