We need someone to join the team who is willing to take responsibility within their role and preferably be AI and foot trimming trained.

We offer on farm training and the opportunity to attend discussion groups or vet meetings when available.

This is an excellent opportunity to join an established team in a beautiful part of North Somerset.

Sounds interesting, what do I need?

Ideally you will be AI trained.

You will be willing to work as part of the team and to learn new skills.

We might be a group of businesses all owned by the Mead family, but we do things very differently here. Everyone who works with us is part of our family (all 1800 of us).

We’ve got 10 sites spanning 8 locations across Somerset, Devon, and most recently London, and we’ve got people doing all sorts of things, from hospitality and property management through to sales and marketing as well as technical, engineering, farming and dairy operations roles.
