Lambourne End Centre are looking for a Farm Instructor to deliver land based education and vocational programmes for young people.
The Centre is a fantastic 54 acre site in south west Essex which is full of opportunity.

The Centre boasts residential accommodation and training facilities, outdoor adventure activities, a garden project and a working farm with dedicated environmental areas. These are used to generate a wide range of programmes which promote and deliver personal development opportunities for young people, especially those at risk or struggling in traditional mainstream environments. All the programmes are designed to encourage team building, problem solving and communication skills, as well as build confidence and raise aspirations.
Suitable candidates should have:
- A commitment towards helping young people, who may have challenging behaviour, to achieve their potential through working with animals
- Relevant experience or qualifications in working with a variety of farm livestock including horses
- Experience of working with a range of young people delivering vocational training, and an interest in gardening and learning outside the classroom
The post is based on a 35 hour week, but will involve flexible working.
Due to the nature of the work, the post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
