  • Ability to use the latest technology
  • A caring, empathetic attitude, where animals’ well-being is at the forefront
  • A willingness to learn
  • 5 years of pig farming experience

 

Experience with forklifts is desirable but not essential, as training and assistance will be given.

 

Job Benefits:

  • Salary - Competitive & negotiated
  • Standard holiday entitlement

  • A detached house
