New Roles - Draft Managers Required
Job Posted 17.09.2020
2021 will see Lime Country Thoroughbreds present approximately 60 yearlings across four sales. This year we are looking for three people who are ready for a step up to being our “Draft Managers” for the Lime Country Classic, Melbourne Premier and Easter sales.
The right people will need to be confident on the lead with both colts and fillies and be looking for a role that sits between sales team member and Yearling Manager. This is a perfect role for experienced and ambitious young people or those with all the experience already who would like to button back for a season from the responsibility of Yearling Manager.
The Draft Managers will work closely with the owners around daily management of their draft, be the hands-on point of contact for vets, farriers and other specialist service providers as well as the go to person for the team members working in your draft.
You will need the confidence to work with the owners to plan your drafts daily schedule, be responsible for record keeping, participate in planning meetings with all senior staff on farm and have the desire to present an exceptional draft of horses that we can all be proud of.
In addition, we will be looking for four yearling team members to join our existing team for the season. You may also be involved in the recruitment of those people to ensure a great team for the season.
In return we offer the opportunity to further your education, skill, craft and understanding of yearling preparation, development, and management. In addition, there will be accommodation on farm, an excellent remuneration package and user-friendly hours. These will be challenging roles but excellent ones for people who wish to learn as much as possible rather than being a cog in a bigger machine for the 20/21 season.
Any of these three roles could provide the opportunity for promotion into a future Yearling Manger’s position at Lime Country or if preferred would finish at the end of the contract.
NB: All farm staff attending sales will be paid casual sales staff rates while at sales.
PS: Loads of great pubs, dining, shopping and things to do within a 4km radius. Best of all the beach is only 50 minutes away, a summer close to Sydney isn't all bad...
