We are currently recruiting for a highly motivated and passionate Stud Hand to join our small and friendly team here at Salcey Forest Stud. This is an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to join a leading stud farm, with state of the art facilities and high-class bloodstock.
Duties will include handling mares and foals, general yard duties and mucking out, assisting the vet and farrier with routine work, maintaining paddock standards and some general maintenance, feeding and grooming, as well as preparation of mares, foals and yearlings for public auction and presentation at the same.
There might be some time away from the stud when taking mares for covers and also when attending the sales, where the ability to drive a 3.5t horsebox would be an advantage but not essential.
The general hours of work are 7am-12.30 and then 2.30-5.30pm depending on the workload and additional hours may be required as necessary. Staff are given every second weekend off and get a half day off on the working week.
We offer a competitive salary with accommodation on site if required. There are 28 days paid holiday including bank holidays, as well as a yearly bonus and pension.
Please forward your cv to firstname.lastname@example.org.
