The Aldburgh Estate

Estate Foreman

Estate Foreman wanted for Rural Estate in North Yorkshire

A forward thinking rural Estate close to Masham is looking to employ an experienced person to carry out a varied and exciting role maintaining and improving the buildings, woodland, parks and gardens across the Estate.

The candidate will be a very important member of a small team and ideally experienced in property maintenance. A good knowledge of the countryside, trees, a keen eye for detail and the ability to work with flexibility is also essential.

The role will vary and evolve with time but duties will include:

  • Habitat and wildlife management
  • Fencing and dry stone wall repairs
  • Vehicle and machine maintenance
  • Horticulture and gardening, including hedge and grass cutting
  • Cutting logs and woodland maintenance
  • Estate security
  • Basic building and road maintenance including some out-of-hours emergency calls

The ideal candidate will already have experience (and appropriate certification) for the use of All Terrain Vehicles, chainsaws, hedge cutters, mowers and possibly herbicide use but none are essential as training will be provided.

Discretion, initiative, self-motivation and privacy are highly valued and in return we hope to provide a fun and enjoyable place to work with trust and autonomy.

The salary will be commensurate with experience. A vehicle is provided along with other benefits.

For any queries or to apply (sending your CV and covering letter with details of your current position) please email or call 07833 474489 for a confidential chat.
