Job description

Interested in making cheese? This is a great way to get hands on experience. We need regular Dairy Assistants to assist with production. It is physical work and you need to be comfortable with working with your body and hands. You help with busiest part of the cheese making process (milling curd, salting and moulding) as well as do a lot of cleaning. You get good exposure to how a small dairy works and we really like everyone to contribute not just labour, but ideas and opinions on the process. A sense of humour is vital and you need to be very detail oriented.    

While occasional workers will be considered, we really require people who will commit to at least 1 day per week for at least 6 months. Our current schedule is as follows (note that all times are approximate):

  • Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday 10.30am – 6pm (approximate)
  • Thursday 8am-4pm (approximate)

The role starts at £9.50/hour.  Wage increases to £10.20/hour if you commit to 2 shifts per week.
