The successful intern will have a love of country life and, as you will mainly be working on the Farm's biggest project, Katy Rodger's Artisan Dairy, you must have an interest in and be inspired by food.  You will be an all-rounder, keen to work hard and make a difference to a small entrepreneurial business.  You will need to be highly organised and have the drive and determination to work on your own initiative.  Strong problem solving skills plus the ability to think outside the box will also be required in this post. 

You will need good written and verbal communication skills, excellent computer skills and a thorough understanding of how to populate a website and handle social media updates.

You must have your own transport and be able to drive, as there is no public transport to Knockraich Farm.  However, you are likely to be driving against the traffic, making the journey relatively easy.
