Having grown up on a small Essex Farm I am used to most Farm tasks and operating heavy machinery. After completing an HND in Engineering in 2000 I went on to work in Aviation for 15 years, specialising in logistics, and setting up and running two of my own companies. I finished with Aviation 6 years ago and since then have been working on Various Farms. I am looking for an interesting job with management potential, but happy to start from scratch. I have experience with Salad Irrigation, ploughing, cultivations, all harvest operations, running multiple grain stores on larger farming enterprises. I also worked for two seasons on Forestry Operations, including felling, excavator mounted harvesters and forwarding. I have plenty of machinery and maintenance experience and have worked with livestock on smallholdings. I am very keen to restart a career in Agriculture and to this end I am investing in my education.
