An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Head shepherd to run and manage the 2,300 ewe in-hand Blackface flock on Drummond Estate, near Crieff.

The successful candidate will have the practical knowledge, experience and good dogs required to run a large hill sheep flock, along with the drive and enthusiasm to work with the existing management team to continue to improve performance and bring new ideas to develop the hill farming business. Experience with suckler cows will be advantageous.

An ability to supervise staff and work as part of the larger team is important, as is a willingness to undertake the associated record keeping.

This is a demanding role that will require flexibility, but one that gives significant opportunity to the right candidate to make their mark in developing and growing this business over the coming years.

A recently fully refurbished 3 bed centrally heated house and farm vehicle will be available to the successful applicant, along with other associated benefits.

Alongside current applicants, we would also like to hear from candidates who may be interested in taking on the role post lambing, if more appropriate to your circumstances.
