Job Description:

Salary: Competitive, dependent on experience, to include a house

A fantastic opportunity to manage an attractive 2,500 acre privately owned Estate that encompasses farming, residential property interests, woodland, and country sports, and where there is an appetite for careful expansion of the business.

The Estate is peacefully situated but within close proximity of the historic and beautiful city of Cambridge, and easily accessed by road from the A1 and A14. Central London is a 49-minute direct train journey and Luton and Stansted airports are less than an hour’s drive away.

The Role

  • Lead relationships with the Estate’s contract farmer and key management advisers.
  • Improve the housing stock and retain residential tenants.
  • Oversee the forestry and environmental schemes.
  • Manage a small team who work hard to make the Estate a great place to live, and a wonderful place to visit.
  • Represent the business within the local community to maintain and strengthen existing positive relationships.
  • Identify, propose, and deliver opportunities to enhance operations and capitalise on the asset base.

The Candidate

Reporting directly to the Estate owners, this full-time, live-in role would suit an enthusiastic and proactive person who can juggle the many different aspects of day-to-day life on the Estate. Candidate qualities we are looking for include:

  • A rural estate management professional who is comfortable conceiving and structuring projects but also prepared to roll up his/her sleeves to support delivery on the ground.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit with strong financial acumen, a good working knowledge of accounts, and a focus on return on investment into a business that has a range of operations and income streams.
  • Highly personable with the ability to engage with a range of individuals, and the leadership skills to motivate teams and advisers. A strong empathy with the countryside and the rural way of life.
