Creating and maintaining good, healthy habitats which are beneficial to all wildlife is at the heart of a gamekeeper’s job.
Gamekeeping has changed significantly over the years and while you will still be responsible for the husbandry of both reared and wild game for shooting, your time will also be spent helping to shape the countryside and protecting its species.
If you love working outdoors, care about the countryside and the environment, and would like to make significant contributions to the biodiversity and conservation of rare species, then why not join the 5,000 full-time gamekeepers currently employed in the UK.
British gamekeepers currently manage approximately 7.3 million hectares of the land in the UK and work closely with farm managers and foresters to help conserve both game and wildlife, using economically viable estate management policies.
What You Will Learn
You will also study land-based machinery, working dogs, pest and predator control and will organise a number of shoot days from start to finish which will include costings, promotion, event preparation and running the activities on the day.
