High Calibre Arable Manager Required for a Leading Estate Farming Business
The Rougham Estate is based in the Suffolk countryside with ancient meadows, green lanes, oak-lined hedgerows, ponds, bluebells, orchids and parklands. It traces its unique history back to Roman times with the Estate now being owned by the Agnew family since 1904 with part of it run on a Charitable Trust basis to preserve its legacy for the future. It is a diverse estate business including a residential property portfolio but with arable farming as the main commercial operation.

You will be a proven people manager of ideally degree calibre with excellent arable farming credentials. It would be beneficial if you have your BASIS and FACTS qualifications or had the desire to gain them with our assistance.
