F/T YARD GROOM, Cobham, Surrey

DESCRIPTION: Silvermere Equestrian Centre is family-run riding with 40 horses. Employing a range of staff from BHS Stage 1-4, everyone is given the opportunity to train for BHS exams and the school is actively looking for a full-time groom looking to progress up the BHS qualification system. Saying that, riding is not a requirement of the job. Instead, the ideal candidate needs to be enthusiastic, have equine experience and work well as part of a team. A high standard of horse care and empathy towards horses is also a must. While the pay is dependent on experience, there is also a live-in option.
