We are looking for a large team of enthusiastic individuals to operate our seaweed processing line from 2nd of April for a period of 3 weeks (possibly extending to 5 weeks).

At The Seaweed Co. Green Turtle, we operate the largest seaweed farm in Ireland situated in the pristine waters of Mulroy Bay (Co. Donegal). At our farm, we cultivate the edible seaweed Alaria, as a food source. Our tender and tasty Alaria forms the main ingredient of our SeaMeat® product, a blend that is being used to create hybrid meat products, such as burgers with 25% less meat. Our Alaria is naturally grown on ropes in the sea and in April needs to be harvested and processed. In Downings, we have built a state-of-the-art processing line, to cut, dry and package the freshly harvested seaweed.


The processing line runs 7 days a week, 24-hrs a day, divided into 8-hour shifts that can start during morning, afternoon or night.

Training will be provided during the first week and will consist of manual handling, first aid, fire safety and food safety. PPE will be provided.

Your tasks will involve:

  • Monitoring the flow of product across the production line and repositioning seaweed on conveyor belt as needed.
  • Perform quality checks in order to identify contaminants and remove them if necessary.
  • Adhere to strict hygiene and safety protocols.
  • Follow instructions.


Start Date: 2nd of April for a period of 3 weeks (possibly extending to 4 or 5 weeks).

Skills you need:

  • Attention to detail
  • Good manual handling
  • Teamwork
  • Adaptability regarding shiftwork
  • Safety Conscious
  • Reliability
  • Good Communication skills


We offer a competitive wage, dependent on experience.

If you are interested, please send your CV or for more details call Malcolm on 00353-86-2178088.

Note: The Seaweed Co. Green Turtle is located in the Gaeltacht area. We embrace the use of the Irish language if and where possible, but it is not a requirement to apply for this role.
