Careers at Barenbrug

At Barenbrug we are determined to be a company that ‘people want to work for’ in the long term. We aim to be a leading light in the Grass Seed Industry, developing and investing in our people today to meet the needs of tomorrow.

Being part of a global brand but operating as part of a localised UK company means that working for Barenbrug gives you the best of both worlds – the security of a privately owned, global enterprise, with the entrepreneurial spirit of a small business.

We recognise talent and reward excellence. Our packages are generous and made up of salary, benefits, work/life balance and tailored learning and development.

Join our team and see how we can help you become the best at your job as well as provide you with opportunities for role development and growth.
