Description

I manage a 730-acre farm near Stow on the Wold and I am looking for a farm worker to help look after a flock of 200 sheep; undertake basic forestry tasks and to generally help around the farm.

We are very focussed on the environment and wildlife through the Countryside Stewardship scheme. We do not use fertilisers, much of our land is wild and some of our equipment is very old, so the farm is unique. The work is challenging, varied and interesting.

Tasks include:

Shepherding

Mowing, topping and hedging

Groundworks, watercourse and fence maintenance

Maintaining paths and rights of way

Basic farm vehicle maintenance

Basic tree work and chain sawing (if qualified)

Wood processing

Building maintenance

Other tasks as required

Applicants should be able to drive, to hold a tractor and trailer licence, have basic ATV training and a LANTRA telescopic handler qualification. Chainsaw qualifications would be useful but are not essential, as would mini digger operator training

£12.50 per hour for on a part-time basis to begin in November 2021. 18 24 hours per week with potentially more by negotiation, of which at least 8 hours over weekends is preferable. The role may soon be offered full time at a 40-hour week to the right applicant.Please apply by email with a CV and covering letter before 5th November 2021.
