Job Vacancies


An exciting opportunity has arisen for an innovative, enthusiastic and highly experienced person to join us on our mixed livestock hill farm, in the beautiful Tay Valley.


We are looking to appoint an assistant manager, who in conjunction with the rest of the team will strive towards increasing landscape capacity through regenerative farming practices, as well as selecting adapted genetics through inhouse breeding programs and management of data sets. The farming operation currently encompasses 3500Ha of farmland, 280 breeding cows and 1700 breeding ewes over two farming operations. We are also involved in two other grazing operations off farm, with a continuing eye on business expansion.

The premise of this role is to have fluidity of thinking and physical application to help build economical, sound, and robust farm management practices.  We are looking to put in place a team player who will add to the well-established ethos and upbeat culture that already exists with the Rotmell Farming family.  We are a public facing rural business that is keen to demonstrate and communicate best landscape practice, justify and prove the relevance of ruminate animals integrated into landscape ecological development, telling that story at every opportunity.  Agricultural consultancy and the development of a 'from farmer - for farmer' knowledge transfer hub is an aspect we are also keen to explore, develop and deliver.

The person in this role will display outstanding leadership skills, be a keen problem solver, focussed on efficiency and take a hands-on approach to management.  The ability to be self-driven and demonstrate initiative is a must.  Engaging with a range of stakeholders including farmers, external agencies, and customers is required for this role, so you will have excellent communication skills, be a good listener and have a friendly demeanour.

We are looking for a progressive-thinking applicant to help take the running of our farming operations forward.
