“It’s a very varied job. I once did a little audit of my day and it involved fixing a Land Rover, cleaning up a bit of sick from a young person, moving some cows, feeding some sheep, running a therapeutic meeting – it can be literally anything, a beautiful variety”

Dave, Senior Visit Coordinator at Jamie’s Farm Monmouth.

Our Values and Behaviours

Our values and behaviours guide everything we do at Jamie’s Farm. We seek to ensure that even as the charity grows, we are able to maintain the unique culture that we have established across our farms – a culture that is based on an optimistic can-do spirit, and which supports and challenges us to be the best of ourselves.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Jamie’s Farm we celebrate diversity and make inclusion part of what we do every day. Our aim is for every staff and volunteer to bring their true self to work and are individually supported to ensure that the positive organisational culture we desire, is sustained.

Training and Development

Jamie’s Farm is committed to providing Continued Professional Development for all its staff, with internal and external training provided. We run interim and annual reviews to support with personal and professional growth, as well as regular management check-ins.

We host an annual Away Day event in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park where our team of over 45 staff come together to feed into the work and future of the charity.

Well-being and Cohesion

Our farms in Wiltshire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and East Sussex are all surrounded by stunning countryside. Whether you work in the office or with our delivery teams, you can reap the benefits of the beautiful, homely environment of the farm and the joys that working in the great outdoors and with animals bring.

The nature of the work is challenging and so we ensure dedicated time is provided weekly for teams to debrief and reflect together, as well as quarterly external supervision.

Other benefits

We provide a daily home cooked shared lunch for all staff, helping to bring the team together and create the community feel that is so vital for the visiting children when they are with us.

Our staff team are central to what we do, and so we take time to listen and ask for feedback on all aspect of our work. Our staff survey last year highlighted that 88% of staff felt excited about going to work and 100% of staff stated they were determined to give their best every day.
