THE FORESTRY commission has selected a Scarborough employment agency to staff two of its top nurseries.

Castle Employment, based in York Place, has been awarded the contract to supply manual nursery operatives staff to Wykeham Nursery and Newton Nursery, in Morayshire.

The deal involves Castle finding 40 to 50 seasonal staff over both sites.

Castle managing director Suzanne Burnett said: “We are delighted that the Forestry Commission has chosen Castle as their preferred supplier of staff.

“We had to complete a rigorous tender process during which our professionalism and value for money service won through.

“We are very much looking forward to working with the Forestry Commission in this regard.”

The work involves working in field based open nursery operatives for the growing, tending, processing and supply of base root forest transplant.
