How to Apply

Living Potential Care Farming (LPFC) are a social enterprise based just outside Wetherby, working with adults with learning disabilities and additional needs – our members. We are based on a 500 acre working farm though we work on only a small part of this area for our project. That project is to provide a supportive, therapeutic environment and a programme of learning, development and activities that:

  • Help our members to develop their skills, confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing.
  • Promote a sense of community across our members, volunteers, staff and wider local community
  • Promote equality and diversity for all
  • Reflect our commitment to being environmentally friendly and sustainable.

As we expand, we now have an exciting full time opportunity for a Farm Project Manager.  This hybrid role combines responsibility for all areas of farm maintenance (c. 3 days) with the opportunity to deliver activities and learning to our members (c. 2 days.)  The job will be Monday to Friday with some weekend work on a rota basis.

Key areas of accountability will be:

  • Leading the planning, organisation and supervision of farm maintenance activities
  • Undertaking all aspects of farm maintenance and animal husbandry within the remit of LPFC activities
  • Delivering learning, work or educational activities in line with the agreed programme or qualification
  • Helping to create a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment for our members
