Employer services

With 30 years’ experience in the sector, we help growers to develop processes and policies to make working life smoother.

We know what matters to growers but we also know what matters to their workers.  

Our goal is to create harmonious relationships where growers and seasonal workers fulfil their orders and grow sustainable businesses. 

We support growers with a fair and simple pricing structure and offer a dedicated service to support you through peak seasons. This section of the website includes details on how to register with HOPS, information about our Employer Portal, guidance on engaging seasonal teams, information about ethical recruitment and modern slavery and what you will need to have in place for HOPS to be able to supply seasonal workers to your business.

"Why I'm #HOPSHappy"

“Despite us building up good relationships with our workers, I can’t afford to be without HOPS. I value their advice on new legislation and changes in the sector – and also I know they will find me new people if I am let down at the last minute. They’re an insurance net that I can’t afford to be without.”
