Working Farm Manager

The Allerton Project is an 800 acre Research & Demonstration farm located in Leicestershire. The farm grows a range of forage and arable crops on predominately Hanslope/Denchworth series clays.

We are looking to engage a new Working Farm Manager. This role offers a diverse and varied role including farm planning, operations work, project management and involvement with research. An outward facing role with the opportunity to talk and learn from a wide range of the team as well as visitors and local farmers.

Alongside carrying out farm operations such as cultivating, drilling, fertilising and spraying, this role gives the opportunity for an individual to be involved in pursuing best practice farm management and demonstrating and communicating this to others. We do commercial cropping and a wide range of trials and are looking for someone to help us bring these two areas together across the rotation and drive the work forward. Attention to detail and timeliness of operations is key and the ability to establish and manage crops in different ways as part of the trials programme is critical, particularly given recent climatic challenges. The successful applicant will also be expected to oversee the engagement of contractors and negotiate some equipment sharing with neighbours.
