A unique opportunity to be responsible for the maintenance of a 2000 acre rural estate in the North Pennines from Spring 2020.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, hard-working, motivated individual who will take responsibility for looking after all angles of maintenance. The right person will have a large degree of autonomy and we are looking to develop a long-term relationship and commitment, where our estate becomes your home. Having said this, this is not a role for the feint hearted: it will be hard-work, largely physical and predominantly outside, often in challenging weather. Whilst the expectation is 40 hours a week, our focus will be entirely on satisfactory completely of tasks, results and attitude. A broad outline would be:
• Maintaining and repairing fences, walls and tracks;
• Basic maintenance of buildings;
• Basic maintenance estate vehicles
• Woodland maintenance;
• Simple building works;
• Driving including occasional pick up from the station;
• Dog walking and care of dog(s) in owners’ absence.
The ideal applicant will have:
• Be a self starter,
• Be capable of working unsupervised;
• Be practical and able to adapt to fix things
• Be flexible, discrete, efficient and work with attention to detail
• Be fit, energetic and good natured
• Be happy to work with others in the rural community
• Basic IT skills (ie email) would be an advantage
Having satisfactorily undertaken a similar role in the past would be an advantage, but is not essential for the right candidate.
A two/three bedroom house, on the estate, and vehicle are provided.
The opportunity would suit a couple where one partner has independent employment.
