Livestock Assistant (Casual)
Salary: National Minimum Wage
Hours: Hours vary but will generally be two days a week plus as and when required to cover staff holidays, events, mobile farms and other activities. Casual workers may be asked to work weekends and public holidays.
This varied and interesting role needs someone with a ‘can do’ approach who is as happy talking to the general public as they are caring for farm animals. Applicants need to have some knowledge of, and interest in, the care of farm and other animals gained through a qualification in animal care or animal management. Reliability is essential. You will need to be able to undertake the physical work associated with the job.
The successful candidate will recognise the importance of a clean environment and a warm welcome to visitors to the site. You’ll need the maturity and responsibility to be self-motivated when you’re working alone and be enthusiastic, flexible and committed as part of the Farm team.
Full training will be given and there are opportunities to expand the role into other areas of the Farm’s work for the right person.
Please apply with CV and covering letter to Nick Golson, Operations Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date for applications is August 24th 2018.
Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Please note that the successful applicant will be asked to undertake a DBS check.
Education & Outreach Manager – PLEASE NOTE THIS VACANCY IS NOW CLOSED
Hours: Full-time, 37.5 hours per week, but applicants interested in part-time, term-time or flexible working welcome.
Salary: Up to £22,000 per annum plus pension contribution
Deen City Farm and Riding School is looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Education and Outreach Manager to drive forward the development of our education, training, and outreach projects. This is a rare opportunity to work on a Farm without leaving the city, and to join a small team of creative and passionate people working in a unique setting. If you love people, animals, the outdoors, and sharing your enthusiasm then this could be the job for you.
The new Manager will establish a clear vision and direction for the Farm’s educational and outreach programmes; maintain and develop our links with local schools, colleges and community groups; design and run a programme of school visits, tours, workshops and events that effectively use the Farm’s resources to fulfil its educational mission; promote the Farm’s work at external events and work with partners to extend the Farm’s outreach into the community. Teaching experience of some sort will be an advantage, but the ability to communicate effectively with young people of all ages and backgrounds is more important. An awareness of safeguarding and health and safety issues is essential.
