I have been applying for keepering positions for a while now and not even got an interview so I am gonna try on here. So here goes, You know how this all works estates usually already know who they are going to take on when positions come available and usually it is someone who has heaps of current experience that they take on and not necessarily the best or most proactive candidate.
I am 35 years of age and trained in grouse keeping and pest control although I have not been in keepering for 20 years I do have 500 acres of ground that I have permission on and have a proven pest control program for the farm and I do help with deer culls in both forest environment and hill ground so well rounded experience in regards to working in the industry. I have a full drivers license, and open FAC as well as SGC with no criminal record. I am fully Diclosed by disclosure Scotland and also a member of the PVG Scheme. I love fishing and shooting and have commercial experience in both. I am also well versed in dealing with the public and fully IT literate. I have the ability to work on my own merits creating my own scheduling as well as working as part of a team. I am eager energetic and willing to learn any new tasks that I need to learn.
I am married with 4 children, however, if the position is in the Highland region I am willing to travel with no problem and accommodation is not a problem.
My ideal position would be an underkeeper/beatkeeper position or asst stalkers position preferably on a mixed grouse/deer estate but would consider anything, although I have no experience in rearing.
thank you for taking the time to read this
