Assistant Dairy Technician

University of Nottingham - Biosciences

The new University of Nottingham Centre for Dairy Science Innovation (CDSI), part of the Agri-Tech National Centre for Dairy Research, has exciting opportunities for a Dairy Technician and an Assistant Dairy Technician. CDSI brings with it a substantial investment in dairy research at the University of Nottingham Farm, where existing facilities are being redeveloped and expanded to create a leading international centre for dairy research. Further details can be found here: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/cdsi/index.aspx

The Assistant Dairy Technician role is an opportunity for an early career applicant or someone with existing experience who would like to work in a dairy farm environment - with a difference. You will support the Dairy Technician and other team members in all aspects of animal husbandry, including feeding, machinery operations (including operation of telehandlers and driving of farm vehicles and tractors), animal handling and care and record keeping. The role requires both good stock management and team-working skills and an ability to contribute to the record keeping, animal welfare and health and safety responsibilities of CDSI.

In return we offer excellent working conditions, competitive remuneration and pension packages, ongoing training and the chance to further develop the roles over time, as well as regular University holiday entitlements. Accommodation, close to CDSI, local villages and schools is available if required.
