The next phase of the expansion is extra farrowing house accommodation and a new service house.

A pig stockperson is required due to the expansion of the sow herd at the indoor farrow to the weaning unit, operating a 3-week batch system. Working alongside the sow unit manager and, when required, taking full responsibility in their absence. Some assistance may also be needed for the growing and finishing unit from time to time.

  • Keenness to learn
  • Be a reliable member of the wider team
  • Have an eye for detail
  • Good IT skills and ability to maintain accurate records
  • Be self-motivated

  • Skid steer and telehandler experience, but training will be provided if necessary

 

Salary: £30,000 doe

Plus: 

  • Nest pension scheme
  • Pay towards a holiday after ten years of employment 

 

Hours:
