Full Time Groom/Groundsperson required for family yard located near Halstead Essex. Easy access from the A12 and A120.

The family have 2 horses at the moment but there will be another added to the yard shortly.

The Groom will be required to carry out all yard duties, exercise the horses ( with another rider ), clip, plait and generally keep the yard and horses in good condition at all times. The horses live out all summer and come back into work in July through to March. A lorry driver would be great but not a dealbreaker and someone who can turn the horses out for hunting would be an advantage.

There is a 3 bedroom house available on site and a couple would be considered who can manage the two jobs between them. Well behaved pet welcome too.

Car driver essential.

The Groundsperson will be required to maintain the grounds alongside a gardener, strimming, weeding, pruning, hedge cutting, spraying and basic handyperson duties around the yard. Dog care also required at times.

If the person or couple decide not to live in, housesitting will be required at times throughout the year.
