A number of vacancies are available and we would love you to be part of this new and exciting team at a time where we are looking at fresh ideas, creativity, and a desire to improve and build on an already brilliant team.

About the role

This is an integral role within the Equine Facilities at Myerscough College. With 3 arenas, including an International Arena, this is a busy environment for both teaching and commercial activity.
