Farming background

I come from a beef farming background in Ireland and have over fifteen years’ experience working on our family farm. During this time, I was also employed as a farm worker on another beef farm in my area, on and off for over twelve years. The same employer also had a landscaping company that I involved in the daily running procedures out on site. I have a full clean drivers licence and am experienced in various types of tractor work and comfortable driving ATV’s. Throughout all my previous employments, I have been complimented on my willingness to learn and my ability to work independently or as part of a team.  Since arriving in New Zealand I have worked on a beef, sheep and dairy grazing property at Cave, Timaru and a beef, sheep and deer property called Fairlight Station. From March- April 2017, I was employed as maintenance person on a large holiday park in Te Anau. This position consisted of carpentry, plumbing and landscaping work. I am currently working on a sheep farm just outside Lumsden, Northern Southland. My visa expires at the end of September 2017 so I will be finishing up here and hoping to secure work in Ireland or the UK. All three positions allowed me to gain valuable experience of the New Zealand style of farming and to see how other farmers operate. Long-term, I hope to develop and broaden my skillset on a modern progressive farm and build a career in the agriculture sector.

Hobbies

Running, hiking, surfing. Anything involving the outdoors really.
