The company are looking to recuit 32 processing staff for their Marybank Factory and three harvest team members for their site at Arnish.

“Our plans to develop our business to meet the growing demand for top quality Scottish salmon worldwide will hopefully mean that many more young people can enter the industry and gain valuable experience for a fulfilling future career.”
