The community owners of Ulva seek a motivated and enthusiastic person who will take on the day-to-day management of the cattle herd and sheep flock on the island and deal with all aspects of livestock welfare and production, some basic farmland maintenance, and compliance with the grazing requirements of the agri-environment climate scheme. Candidates will need to demonstrate relevant farming experience, preferably in similar landscapes and logistically challenging locations, although there is an opportunity to benefit from mentoring on a nearby farm on the Isle of Mull for any new entrants or candidates wishing to expand their knowledge about hill livestock farming or otherwise wanting to take advantage of support to settle into this position For further details please register your interest with the Scottish Land Matching Service and submit your CV and supporting statement by 25 February 2022.
