About the role

The Conservation Farmer is responsible for the development and management of the Heart of England Forest’s livestock grazing programme to ensure that animals are available for grazing on a wide range of habitats throughout the Forest.

This is a unique role which will give the successful candidate an opportunity to grow and shape the agroforestry element of England’s largest new native broadleaf forest. We are looking for someone with livestock husbandry experience, committed to high standards of animal welfare. Absolutely key is a “can do” attitude, and we need someone keen to learn who will be a passionate ambassador for the charity.

The ideal candidate will be a team player, comfortable with working on their own for significant periods, and undertaking all aspects of farm work as required, from animal husbandry to arable, and accurate paper and electronic record keeping to general farm maintenance. 

We would love to hear from an experienced farm worker able to use their own initiative, looking for their next challenge, who is committed to conservation and enthusiastic about the use of grazing animals to improve our natural environment.
