Head Groom required – Skilts Farm, Redditch, Worcestershire.
Head Lad or Lass required to join our happy team on our mixed, BHS Approved Livery Yard and KEITS Approved Training and Assessment Centre.
You will be required to perform and oversee all yard duties for the day to day care of up to 30 privately owned competition, leisure, rehab and breeding horses/ youngstock of various shapes, sizes and breeds. You will help us to uphold our high standards of care by managing the horses diets, health care and some exercise regimes (including riding and ground schooling) whilst working with 3 other full time experienced grooms and apprentices. You will need good people skills to liaise with the horses' owners as well as visiting professionals and the Yard Manager.
You'll need to be hard-working and adaptable with a good sense of humor but in return you'll enjoy a 5 day week, working in a happy, supportive, relaxed environment with excellent working conditions, plenty of opportunity to train, gain further qualifications or compete (if desired), on a strictly 'no politics' yard. Present Head Groom of 4 years (who gained her Level 3, Advanced Equine Diploma with us) recommends.
As well as a nice place to work alongside genuinely nice people, we'll try to help you develop your passion and your career with horses as much as possible by giving you varied work experience as well as the opportunity to gain your Level 3 Equine Diploma and/or BHS qualifications, or we could be a platform for you to compete your own horse or one of ours with the help of our resident and visiting trainers.
