Sherborne Castle Estates


Job description:

The Sherborne Castle Estate offers a challenging opportunity for a Resident Agent to manage an historic estate which is home to the Wingfield Digby family, developing and delivering a 10-year management plan covering a diverse mix of residential, agricultural and commercial property portfolios.

Sherborne Castle is a 13,000-acre estate with Sir Walter Raleigh’s Castle at its heart encompassing some unique properties in a rich mix of landscapes and enterprises which include 270 houses, 43 let farms and land, expansive in-hand farming operations, 50 commercial properties, development land, sporting and woodland.

This senior position offers a career progression for applicants with commensurate land management experience but also with ambitions to take on wider responsibilities, leading by example in a role which could benefit from innovation in a variety of farm-led enterprises.

The successful Resident Agent will have the presence and experience to manage the financial viability of estate business, the drive to take new initiatives, and the energy to match that of the dynamic in-house estate teams. Reporting directly to the owner and working alongside trustees and advisers the challenge is to contribute to the strategic direction of this high-profile estate with commitment and diplomacy.

Competitive salary with house and car available.

For an informal conversation contact Anthony Mayell FRICS (consultant agent) between 12pm and 2pm any day on 01905 459426 or 07836 646472.
