Thanks for posting this @sceleta - I know we have at least a couple folks on here who are actively searching for a job.


My pleasure! This is my most difficult roll right now. I’ll check and see what else I have going on and post a few more soon! I would love to be a positive resource to growersnetwork, in this way.


Yeah it sounds like you are looking for someone senior with a lot of experience. I know we have some very experienced consultants on here, but I don’t know if any of them are looking to jump back into a full time dedicated position over their consulting gigs. I’ll ask around and see if any of them are open to it.


Thank you Nic!
