Equipment experienceTractor, Tracked machine, Telehandler/fork lift, Fencing
Other equipment experience

I have never worked with a tractor, only driven one on the fields, however, I believe it is something I will quickly pick up. I have used a telescopic forklift for three months on a building site, using it to pour concrete, unload wagons etc.I became very efficient by the end of the summer. I am not entirely sure what is meant by fencing as wooden and electric both come to mind, i was a shuttering carpenter for many years from which i learned the basic principles of load bearing and would be efficient at putting up a wooden fence. I have some awful shock experiences from electric fences however, much older now i will be working with rubber gloves if ever in contact with them again.

Livestock experienceDairy, Sheep
Other livestock experience

I have spent one summer as an eager teen working for a small scale dairy farmer, he had no more than 40 cattle that needed to be walked on the road at dusk and dawn, furthermore i also cleaned the sheds where he kept a bull with a head as big as a car bonnet, he taught me to work calmly with no sudden movements and to avoid looking at the bull in the eye. my grandfather kept over 100 sheep, my only experience with them however is blocking off gates whilst he was changing fields. i also overlooked on him worming them, and sheering them.

I have spent three years doing security on clubs and pubs, four years on construction sites working as a shuttering carpenter in which time i gained a NVQ 2 in form work. i have also worked as a bar tender and waiter for many years.

Hobbies

I spend as much time as I can walking with my son and doing outdoor activities such as the park. I have recently got back into cycling too.
