Kivells is organised around five divisions, Agricultural sales and auctions (including the 3 livestock markets at Holsworthy, Hallworthy and Exeter and on farm sales throughout the Westcountry). Farm, Residential and Commercial Property (covering sales and lettings).
The role: Kivells are looking for a full time Market Receptionist to cover a period of maternity leave at the busy Holsworthy Livestock Market. The successful candidate will work on reception together with undertaking administration for the agricultural department.
