This is a fantastic opportunity to work within the UK’s first community owned dairy cooperative at an exciting time.

Stroud Micro Dairy was set up in 2017 as the UK’s first dairy CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) venture and is now a cooperative with 150 members.

You will be expected to work together with other team members, work experience students and volunteers.

This role will be a full time position for 6 months from April-September and will involve some weekend work. Salary will be £22,308 per annum pro rata.

Requirements:

  • Permission to work in the UK
  • A clean UK recognised driver licence
