Yorkshire Greens – Finance and Administration Manager

Yorkshire Greens is joint venture partnership between 3 companies: d’Arta UK, Swaythorpe Growers and GWE Biogas.

D’Arta UK is a long standing producer of frozen vegetables in continental Europe and has overall responsibility for the day to day operation of Yorkshire Greens, as well as the Sales & Marketing of its products.

Swaythorpe Growers is a group of farmers formed into a Producer Organisation with the aim of growing, harvesting and supplying peas and broad beans for Yorkshire Greens. Swaythorpe Growers supplies crops to Yorkshire Greens, who operate a brand-new state of the art freezing facility in the heart of our growing area.

GWE Biogas operates an anaerobic digester that neighbours Yorkshire Greens and takes all the organic waste from the facility and unavoidable food waste from across the UK (including Yorkshire Greens) and converts it into renewable energy in the form of biogas and electricity supplying 100% of Yorkshire Green‘s energy needs.

The Yorkshire Greens Frozen Food Factory

By creating these partnerships and joint approach, it allows the Growers to work extremely closely with the factory to get the best results for the consumers, while producing the greenest of green peas and top quality carrots.

Following the construction of the new plant in Yorkshire in 2018, Yorkshire Greens has gone from strength to strength and is now a very successful business, which turns over circa £11million per year, with high ambitions.

Ideally based on the outskirts of Beverley, near Driffield, the gentle sea breezes and sloping hills combined with the skill of local farmers allows Yorkshire Greens to grow peas and carrots to an excellent quality with a distinctive sweet taste.

The Role

Being a very integrated business, the Board (with representatives of all shareholders) has decided to create a new full time Finance & Administration Manager with responsibilities in 2 out of the 3 companies.

Based on the outskirts of Beverley, near Driffield, you will be reporting predominantly to members of the Board and the Plant Manager based on the Yorkshire site.

As Finance & Administration Manager, your main responsibilities will include accounting, payroll and supporting improvements in business performance.

You will have full responsibility for all the accounting and payroll of the business and be heavily involved in the modernisation of systems and processes, as well as supporting the Plant Manager in monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) for the manufacturing plant.

The Right Person

To be the successful Finance  & Administration Manager, you will have a proven track record of working at a similar level, ideally in a manufacturing environment and have implemented or modernised processes / systems.

Experience using QuikBooks is ideal, although not a necessity if you have used other accounting software. You must have worked with MS Office on a professional level and it would be beneficial if you have processed payroll in house.

What’s on offer?

A challenging position, where you have the opportunity to further expand your broad knowledge of the various Financial aspects of a business.

You will work for a company that is part of an international, reputed and financially strong organisation with strong local UK allies.

The business is growing and offers interesting future opportunities.

Yorkshire Greens and all the partnerships in the Group are characterised by an open culture and short lines of communication.
