We’re working on a new and improved website. In the meantime you can continue to access our existing site.



Harvest Temps


Our harvest temp programme is perfect for students who want to gain on-the-job experience during summer holidays from university, or for someone who simply is looking for a temporary job over the summer months.

As a harvest temp, you will work either as a grain sampler or in our operational team on one of our 48 sites around the country. Many of our harvest temp workers have gone on to do our work placement programme for their sandwich year at university, or join Frontier in a full time role.  

We recruit for Harvest Temp positions from February each year and you would be expected to work from July - September/October. Check our current opportunities listing to search for our Harvest Temp vacancies.

Grain Collecter 

As a grain collecter, you will be responsible for collecting grain from farms and stores, ensuring that bags and documentation are completed correctly and arranging sampling appointments with customers via telephone.  You will be required to deliver an excellent level of customer service and have the ability to communicate with a variety of people both internally and externally.This role involves driving between different farms to collect grain samples and delivering these samples to our labs to be tested. A full UK driving licence is therefore necessary if you are interested in becoming a grain collecter.   


Operations Team

Working in our operations team can mean a number of different roles, including lab assistant, forklift driver, seed processor or working in our warehouse, among many more. All of these roles are site-based and may involve doing tasks such as loading seed bags, tipping bulk lorries, testing and recording seed samples and facilitating audits. These roles require a high level of communication, the ability to be flexible with your approach to work and a willingness to learn and develop new skills. Although some of our operational roles require some experience or qualifications (see job adverts in our current opportunities for more information), full training will be given to our harvest temp workers. If you have any questions about these roles or want to speak to someone about the harvest temp opportunities that we have, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
