Over the last 14 months I have been the Estate Manager on two Rural Estates one in Surrey and my current position in Gloucestershire. Both positions although being on Rural Estates have not given me the feeling of being part of the land and Estate due to the post requirements and lack of fulfilment in a traditional country Estate sense.
Being brutally honest I am looking for a way of life rather than just a job. I have spent many years gaining experience in various roles to be able to hopefully fulfil this and the position that you are advertising for sounds absolutely perfect.
I am at home working outside in all weather conditions, in muddy fields, working in undergrowth and woodland and generally enjoying the fresh air, I believe that your position would offer me this.
Prior to working on the above estates I spent 3.5 years on an Estate, Warwickshire working for the the family. During this post I was involved in Gamekeeping with the Gamekeeper, this involved rearing pheasant poults, poultry husbandry, building pens, feeding, pest control of foxes, rats and grey squirrels etc, later bing involved in beating, direction of beaters and eventually Shoot Captain on several occasions. I was involved in many land based projects and the general maintenance of the hall including management of staff.
I was also the personal Deer Stalker, butcher and cook for the family.
With regards to Tractor driving, I have driven a tractor with my position on the Surrey Estate and my current Estate in Gloucestershire but, only for topping the paddocks
After working for several years within the Rural Estate environment and Police service, I feel that I would be a valuable asset to your Estate.
I have developed a well rounded skillset in People Management and Engagement, Estate Management, Project Management, Building Maintenance, Security, Grounds Maintenance, Animal Husbandry, Pest Control etc.
In addition to my professional experience, I have a passion for the outdoors and rural life. I have both Firearms and Shotgun certificates and qualified DSC1 with Trained Hunter & Game Meat Hygiene qualification.
I have a full clean driving licence.
