Syngenta Jealott's Hill

Each year we recruit a number of summer vacation workers at Jealott’s Hill International Research Centre. 

As a Summer Vacation worker you’ll be a valued member of the team, enjoying a real job – with real responsibilities –  within laboratories and glasshouses to support the R&D operations.

Summer Vacation work typically lasts between 10 – 12 weeks.

Syngenta Whittlesford and Market Stainton 

We recruit Harvest Workers over each summer period across our two seed sites – Whittlesford and Market Stainton, both located in the east of the UK.

These are opportunities to obtain hands on experience within a global organisation whilst working within a friendly supportive team.

Experience is not required and training is provided. These roles are ideal for school leavers, college and university students.

If you're interested in undertaking some harvest work at our Market Stainton or Whittlesford sites please apply here.

Having been a vacation worker at Syngenta three times I can honestly say the experience has really set the start of my career on track. The mix of work was well balanced between developing technical skills valued in industry and insight into how a large organization works. For me, my vacation work directly led into a year of contracting followed by an offer to be full time employee. I found that by using my summers to be a vacation worker gave me an early advantage of having a Masters and a year’s worth of experience in just 4 years, not to mention having industry contacts. Overall I highly recommend vacation work to anyone looking for a taster of the industry or looking for a competitive advantage in todays saturated graduate jobs market." - Michael Bird.
