I take pride in my work, paying close attention to detail and am happy to work long hours when required
My partner and I are expexting a baby in February and currently live in rented accommodation in the Marlborough area of Wiltshire.
Growing up in Staffordshire in a predominantly livestock focused area, I have gained extensive experience working with stock and with grassland machinery operations, however, my true passion lies within the arable sector.
With the aim of gaining experience within the arable field, i completed several harvests for estates ranging from 4000 to 7000 acres, covering all typical harvest duties.
I then used the experience gained during these harvests to secure a position as a tractor driver on the arable side of a mixed farming enterprise. I decided to leave this position after 2 years, as i felt that staying there was preventing me from moving my career forwards.
I subsequently spent the spring and early summer of 2021 working for a busy contracting business, where the main focus of my work was pesticide and fertiliser applications, however i was also responsible for the cultivations and drilling of the firm's owned land.
With a strong drive to progress within the industry, i am aiming to secure a long term position in which i can further my experience, develop my career and take on new responsibilities.
