Trainee Manager; job on farm in <>Somerset<>

Farm TypeDairy, Arable

We are seeking a high calibre individual to help move our business forward through and beyond Brexit.  We have a rapidly expanding agribusiness specialising in dairy and arable but looking to expand into other areas if opportunities arise.  The farm covers approximately 1700 acres and we milk 750 cows, rearing our own followers.   We produce all of our own forage, using a high maize inclusion and achieving average milk sold/cow of 11000 litres per annum. We target top yield and commercial performance in our arable enterprise with most operations being performed in house over approximately 700 acres of cereals and 450 acres of maize.  The ideal candidate will be multiskilled but adaptable with a high work ethic and desire to achieve top standards. The emphasis is as much on the individual as their current skillset because we really are seeking a person who desires responsibility and a long term management post.

To match our criteria the candidate would obviously need to be highly literate and competent in mathematics with good computer skills.  Competency in arable operations and livestock husbandry will obviously be an advantage and workshop skills would be a real positive.  The candidate will be required to perform regular feeding of our TMR through a twintub feederwagon amongst other livestock duties.  A willingness to work hard and the tenacity to take on the majority of tasks and challenges without question is what we are really looking for.  We would view ourselves as a good employer who can offer very competitive rates of pay and a really good long term opportunity and lifestyle to the ideal person.  The ideal individual will have the drive to help refine, build and adapt the business in order to create their own long term role and achieve their own long term ambitions.
