We are looking for a new Herdsperson

Innes Cheese is a small team producing raw milk goats cheese using milk from our own herd onsite at Highfields Farm. We are looking for someone to join us in a permanent position as herdsperson from August 2018 to replace our current Herdsperson who is retiring in September.

We are looking for a candidate who is enthusiastic, reliable and hardworking. Livestock experience is essential.

You need to be able to work well in a busy environment. You must have a good level of physical fitness as the job requires heavy lifting and working on your feet.

You must also have:

·         Organisational skills for keeping herd records

·         Ability to work independently on the job

·         Practical nature

·         Calm and confident with livestock (experience doesn’t have to be with goats)

·         Experience in or an aptitude to learn about food production and hygiene (clean milk is essential to cheese making)

·         Attention to detail, an openness to learning and helping us evolve and innovate our farm

·         Flexibility, to be able to work every other weekend and additional hours when required.

·         Reliable

In return, you will work with a small, friendly and successful team in a peaceful rural environment.

On site accommodation may be available.
