We require 1 or 2 persons to assist on our busy, progressive farms in SW Scotland in the heart of "Bonnie Galloway".
These are positions which would suit travelling companions / couples who would like to put away some cash for at least 8 - 12 months whilst travelling. The position could be extended for as long as possible if things go to plan.
We have a role available assisting our current calf rearer's on one unit, whilst work for a companion could be found on one of our other farms joining our team of 20 staff.
Some experience with livestock is preferred but equally important is a willingness to learn and an enthusiasm for caring for animals. An ability to work with IT is also important as all our records are kept electronically, if travelling as a pair or couple at least one should be a competent tractor / machine operator also.
We have a large brand new bespoke calf rearing unit, making use of the latest IT and are also involved in some exciting progeny testing projects in conjunction with processors and retailers . Here you will work as part of the team, feeding and caring for the calves.
In return we would offer a competitive hourly rate with plenty of overtime, but equally regular time off.
Also included would be free accommodation in the form of a modern mobile home compliant with all safety checks, FREE heating and power would also be provided.
We have employed many Kiwis and Australians before. One Kiwi has just left having completed his second period with us.
Look forward to hearing back from you.
