Experienced Ranch Manager needed for a privately owned 20,000-acre ranch in South Texas that operates as a getaway for the family and invited guests currently. The primarily utilization of the property is for hunting purposes: quail and whitetail deer during the season as well as eleven exotics that can be hunted any time of the year. Future plans for the ranch could include the development of the property for commercial hunting.

The ranch seeks a bilingual (English/Spanish) Ranch Manager who will be responsible for staff management and mentorship, overall property management and hunting operations, delivery of first-class hospitality to owners, family and guests, and meeting financial and budget expectations.

Ideal candidates will have previous experience managing a large, hunting focused ranch and will understand and share in the larger vision for the property and for the management of the wildlife. While this is primarily an administrative position, the Ranch Manager is expected to be willing to work alongside the crew when needed. The majority of the crew are of Mexican descent and it’s important that the new manager is able to communicate effectively and garner their respect while fostering a pro-active mindset when it comes to the care of the property. Ideal candidates will be able to quickly establish a trust level with the staff and be willing to delegate key duties as needed without micromanaging.

The Ranch Manager will interact with guests on occasion and must be capable of entertaining while representing the ranch and its owners professionally.

Candidates must possess strong administrative abilities and be able to oversee and implement policies and procedures as needed. Will be responsible for supervising different department heads and should be capable of providing written documentation about issues that arise. Must be able to keep the larger picture in mind while still handling the day to day moving pieces to make progress towards the ultimate goals for the ranch.

Competitive compensation package including benefits and on-site housing is provided.
