Employment demands and a flexible workforce

At Everest People Solutions we understand that the fruit and vegetable sector has specific needs due to significant seasonal demands.

We help fresh produce growers, manufacturers, and producers – from small family businesses to large commercial operations – to hire the people they need to fulfil varying demand throughout the seasons. We understand the requirements of working with perishable foods with a relatively short shelf life. Whether you need to hire permanent staff to oversee your growing operations, or seasonal workers to cover the harvest period, we can help.
