We Are Hiring!!

Full Time Field Technician

Your future, your way

Sheep Ireland exists to achieve the greatest possible improvement, from genetic and other factors, in the profitability of the national sheep flock for the benefit of Irish farmers and the sheep industry. We do this by the application of science and technology to ensure that our farmers and industry make the most profitable and sustainable decisions, through the use of the services provided by Sheep Ireland.


In order to enhance the service provided by Sheep Ireland we are looking to recruit a Full Time Field Technician. This position would involve extensive travel throughout Ireland, visiting LambPlus flocks, commercial flocks that are interested in performance recording, research flocks as well as attending some industry meetings. While visiting these flocks you would be required to work with animals, record data and answer any queries the farmer may have with regards to data recording or the €uroStar indexes, which should ultimately help to increase the awareness and adoption of the €uroStars.

As this role will require extensive travel with the need to transport handling equipment, a company vehicle will be provided. A competitive benefits package will also be included along with some flexibility around working hours.

It is essential that applicants have:

  • A full clean drivers’ licence
  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in shepherding
  • Ability to work autonomously

Other experience that would be beneficial to have, but not essential

  • Interacting with the Sheep Ireland database
  • Presentation and public speaking
  • Interacting and building relationships

So, if you’re looking to develop your career, stretch your ambitions and work for an innovative and dynamic company that has the ability to succeed on the global stage, ours is a journey you’ll want to share.

Please apply here including your CV and cover letter.

Closing date for applications is by Tuesday, January 1st 2019.
