Most of the work is Involved in picking and packing strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. At times there is other work such as weeding, planting, pruning raspberries,de-leafing strawberries along with many other tasks.
When harvesting people work in teams averaging five people and are paid for how much is picked of the correct quality. Piece work rates are calculated to be not less than the national minimum, and as pickers become more experienced they can earn more. People are paid each month, but can take a cash advance earlier if needed. Tax and national insurance are deducted by law and holiday pay is paid when holiday is taken or at the end of employment.
Hours of work are 6-8 hours per day, time varies and dependant upon weather and season. Saturday is your day off.
