Seasonal Professional - Caretaker/Jack of All Trades
Sweet Grass Ranch is a family-owned guest ranch in the spectacular Crazy Mountains of Montana. The ranch dates back to the late 1800s and we've been taking guests at this location since 1965.
PLEASE NOTE JOB LOCATION IS NOT AT SWEET GRASS RANCH BUT ABOUT 8 MILES AWAY: Sweet Grass Ranch is hiring a caretaker for an adjacent property about 8 miles away from the guest ranch across country or 20 miles via road. We are looking for a jack-of-all tradesperson from June 10 to September 18, 2022, for this property located in the foothills of the Crazy Mountains, thirty miles from the nearest town and accessed through six gates.
Caretaker Job requirements: Include, but are not limited to:
- Maintenance, cleaning and repairs of buildings, including light carpentry work; grounds maintenance to include operation of a log splitter and chain saw, use of a mini pickup utility truck, spraying and pulling weeds, lawn care; repairing corrals and fencing as needed;
- Maintenance of solar powered electrical system as this location is all off-grid;
- Responsible for horse care and feeding for 8-10 horses; ability to help with pack trips and dinner rides from the guest ranch, including riding, setting up tents, cleaning up and cooking assistance.
The person selected for this job must be a self-starter, independent with a great deal of integrity, and able to work with minimal oversight, as the owners will only be there part-time and the individual hired will be at the ranch alone much of the time. A small bunkhouse cabin is provided; the employee will do their own cooking but the ranch purchases groceries; salary is dependent on experience and a bonus at end of the season for excellent work. Cell service at buildings.
Workdays vary depending on what needs to be done each day. Six days of work each week/one day off. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and 3 references of people for whom you have worked.
How to Apply
Please send resume and cover letter, along with 3 references via email
