Overview Of Role

Rothamsted Research Farm in Hertfordshire is looking to recruit a Junior Farm Technician, to join the Harpenden Farm Team. 

If you are an ambitious individual, who is organised and a good communicator we would love to hear from you. This role will either suit a new entrant looking for experience or alternatively an experienced operator who would like the challenge of working in a research environment. The ability to think outside the box at times is welcomed.

Some practical experience working on a farm or with agricultural field trials is desirable, but not essential for this role. You will have or want to learn skills and knowledge in the areas of tractor and telehandler driving, machinery operation and basic machinery maintenance. As a research farm, accurate record keeping and following strict protocols is essential. 

The post is initially for a 1 year fixed term period, with potential to extend. This role attracts a salary ranging from £ 17,500 per annum, dependent on experience. Lawes Agricultural Trust have a portfolio of rental properties in close proximity to the farm, for those who would require accommodation

Closing 3 August 2021, interviews w/c 9 August
