Farming background

Farm hand on Poultry and sheep farm. Duties Included: Checking livestock, feeding, bedding down, medication, moving livestock and marking, fencing, lambing, grading eggs, quad bike driving ,some tractor experience, and delivering produce. Some of this role was spent working directly with farm owner, but I was also was lone working where I needed to use my initiative to solve any issues that I found. I also needed to recognise when to seek assistance, when problems was outside of my scope of knowledge and work in a safe manner. I worked to a prompt time schedule arriving punctually and managing my time efficiently throughout the day. This job also required me to be flexible working long hours during busy seasons of the year such as lambing or days when new stock arrived.

Hobbies

In my own time outside of work I enjoy taking part in a variety of outdoor sports, I think keeping healthy and active outside of work helps to keep a good life balance. I enjoy both mountain biking and road cycling where I have taken part in sportives to raise money for local charities and this year challenged myself to cycle 800 miles down the length of Portugal. This was a personal challenge which was physically and mentally extremely hard but the satisfaction that I had on completion gave me a great sense of achievement, I enjoy being outdoors in all weathers through the seasons, exploring my local countryside, walking my dog. I am also a keen vegetable gardener and get great enjoyment from self sufficiency growing my own fruit and vegetables on my allotment. Alongside my allotment I also spend my free time keeping small holding of chickens and geese and raising rare breed pigs.
