Having recently entered the Estate woodland into a Countryside Stewardship Scheme, the Dallam Tower Estate is looking to expand its Estate team to employ a second full time member to carry out the necessary management works as part of a wider role on the Estate. We are looking for someone with some experience in woodland management and deer and squirrel control will be a significant part of the role. In addition, day to day work will include tree felling and cross cutting, fencing, groundworks and property maintenance. You would also be involved in managing footpaths and helping to look after a herd of fallow deer in the deer park.

We are a traditional agricultural estate and are looking to recruit someone with a strong affinity for the countryside, a good work ethic, lots of common sense and the ability to work alone or as part of a small team. This position will require some weekend work and is a physically demanding but rewarding role, set amongst beautiful countryside in the Arnside and Silverdale National Landscape.

The applicant must hold a full driving licence, as well as tickets for DSC1 & 2 and carcass handling, chainsaw maintenance, felling/cross cutting, shotgun and firearms certificates,. Strimming and brushcutting experience would be useful although not essential.

Salary commensurate with experience. Accommodation in the form of a two-bedroom cottage may be provided on the Estate to enable the applicant to properly fulfill their duties.

Applications should comprise a CV with a summary of experience and qualifications together with a covering letter emailed to estateoffice@dallamtower.com.
