Professional Farm Manager

An exciting position with long term opportunities has arisen for an experienced and driven Farm Manager to join the Buitelaar Team.

Established in 1922, with nearly 100 years and five generations of success behind it, the Buitelaar Group specialises in providing sustainable, higher welfare beef supply chain solutions with a focus on British beef and rosé veal. At the heart of the business is our large Calf Rearing Development Farm, which, as a key operation of the supply chain, is committed to showcasing the standard of excellence provided across the business. 

Based near Frome, Somerset, the professional higher-welfare unit is a key operation within the UK’s largest integrated beef supply chain and has seen considerable investment and development since acquisition. The farm offers vast opportunity for education, on-farm trials and research and development in the future.

Working with Senior Management and reporting to the Operations Manager, this role requires a commercially minded agricultural professional with exceptional knowledge and working experience of Calf Rearing. Focuses of the farm include sustainability, efficiencies, higher animal-welfare and profitability.

Responsibilities include: forward scheduling, daily planning, excellent animal welfare, organisation, administration, team management and recruitment. The business is searching for passionate candidates with strong experience of leading a team of talented livestock workers, with an ability to motivate and enthuse individuals. 

This is a role requiring an extremely professional individual who can demonstrate the ability to communicate, present and influence credibly and effectively at all levels of the organisation and have excellent attention to detail throughout their work. It is essential that the candidate has the same drive, enthusiasm, reliability and self-starting attitude that makes the business the market leader that it is.

For the right candidate, we are offering a highly competitive package (including accommodation).
