Senior Farm Manager | Poultry (Broiler)

We are currently working on a senior farm management position for a developing broiler farm as part of a family run business. The wider farm business consists of arable farming & contracting, business lets and renewable energy. In early 2016 the business added a 4 shed broiler unit, which is now in the process of expanding to 8 sheds (400,000 Birds) and looking for an experienced manager to run the sites with a team below them.

The Role

As a senior farm manager you will be working with the farm partners and consultants during the process of developing the 4 new sheds and how they will be integrated into the existing 4 sheds that are being run at the minute. You will be responsible for the top line performance of the 8 shed unit when it is fully functioning, along with managing the team to help deliver the performance goals that will be agreed with you and the farming business partners.
Strategy will play a large part in this role to make sure the transition from 4 to 8 sheds is as seamless as possible but also to have a plan in place to get the unit operating at peak performance in the shortest time possible. Currently the site has a biomass plant and a plan for ground source heat is being discussed.

The Successful Candidate

To be successful in this role you will have the following:-

Experience of managing a broiler site and team, ideally with a capacity over 300,000.
Experience working with renewable energy systems on farm.
Ideally experience with Fancom Systems.
Excellent Computer, Communication and Relationship building skills will be essential.

There is a good basic salary on offer along with a generous bonus scheme and a new 3 bed barn conversion, away from site for the successful candidate.

If you are interested and would like to find out more, please get in touch with Michael on 01780 480530 or for a confidential chat.
