CV reference number: 35679
CV Headline

I have been farming for over 25 years, assisting multiple farmers manage their farms and helping to develop their other businesses using my building expertise. During my time farming in New Zealand I was given the opportunity to run my own dairy run-off farm, leading and managing a small team. In Australia I was fortunate enough to work in a large team combining and harvesting, using the latest technology on a huge scale. This is when I gained the most experience of fixing the team’s machinery in remote environments. As I have spent most of my career being self-employed, it is vital that my enthusiasm and attention to detail is high to ensure the farmers I work for are running a productive enterprise. My clients trust me to not only do a good job first time but also allow me to make my own decisions and advise them on the best products, equipment and methods to get the job done. I am keen to formalize my experience in the industry by attending college and enjoy researching updates in the farming industry and use these skills in a role that allows me to use them in a more managerial role.
