What jobs are there in flour milling and agriculture?
Agriculture jobs in Africa centre around the growing, maintenance and harvesting of crops, such as vegetables, fruits, grains and nuts, or the looking after livestock. Likewise, with flour milling jobs, these revolve around converting grains to produce products like flour.
The average agricultural or flour mill worker often works under the supervision of a manager, where they often receive on the job training. Most agricultural and flour milling jobs require candidates to work on mills or farms of all sizes, from small family-run businesses to large industrial agriculture organisations.
As for more senior roles, such as an agricultural manager or a shift mill manager, these positions are often responsible for making sure that work happens on farm estates and mills.
