We’re looking for someone to join the anaerobic digestor side of the business to help run and maintain the plant. This would suit someone with a mechanical background for example an engineer. Daily tasks would include:
- Feeding digestor with feedstocks
- Daily checks on equipment
- General maintenance of plant and equipment
- Running and maintenance of two large belt driers
- Record keeping
- Periodic fabrication tasks (for the right person)
- Helping the agricultural team with harvest time and other busy periods
This would be a full time role. We don’t currently have any onsite accommodation available but this could be possible in the very near future. Immediate start.
Potential for career progression for the right candidate.
Although no prior knowledge of the Anaerobic Digestion industry is required we will be looking for the following attributes:
- mechanically minded
- team player
We are a family run business operating a 2,000 acre arable farm and 1,500 beef cattle. This runs alongside our Anerobic Digestion Plant which produces 1.5MW of renewable energy (power for approx 2,500 homes) in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. We also run two belt driers that dry waste paper pulp and turn this into animal bedding for resale.
As a business we are always looking for ways to diversify. Starting out as a dairy and beef farm, in 2013 we were looking for ways to future proof the farm given the uncertainty in the milk industry. This is when the AD plant was installed. The AD plant now works hand and hand with the arable and beef business using cow manure and energy crops to produce renewable energy.
Our loyal and friendly team is made up of 15 full and part time employees along with numerous contractors and we are looking to increase this due to expansion.
