I am currently undertaking a BSc degree in Agriculture at Harper Adams. Outside of work and uni I like to go shooting, snowboarding, to music festivals and the races and I've always wanted to go on a hunt. I also occasionally go on outings with the off-road society at university. My post-graduate dream is to work my way up to a farm manager position on a beef and sheep farm.

Worked in the national farm research unit for 3 months carrying out research studies on livestock, arable and sprays. Most of my work experience is centred around livestock farms and I haven't got much machinery experience, however I am keen to try all aspects of farming and so I would like to get more experience with arable work. Health and safety in the workplace and first aid in the workplace courses completed.
Start: 28/12/2020 Finish: 02/10/2021
I am looking to work a beef and sheep estate or farm, with possible arable work as well. Im happy to work anywhere in England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland.
