Farming background

I haven't had a full-time farm job before, but have some voluntary experience. I'm really passionate about British farming and I'd like an opportunity to expanding my skills and learn more about cattle and sheep farming. I strongly believe in outdoor grazing animals and it would be great to learn all the ins and outs of paddock grazing systems. I believe in trying to keep traditional skills and ways of life alive and in the quality of produce over quantity.

I live in Nottingham but spend most of my weekends hill walking in Derbyshire Dales/Peak District and North Yorkshire. I'm never happier then when outdoors in the countryside (in any weather) and I'd love to be able to make it part of my job. I'm interested in all aspects of farming.

I actually have a background in policing and left to pursue a career in professional aviation. The coronavirus pandemic has left me having to find other career opportunities and currently I work in document forensics. However, what I'm really keen to do I forge a new path in farming and take my work outdoors into the hills and countryside. Having held highly trusted jobs previously, I believe I'm a very trustworthy and reliable person. I understand what it is to work hard to achieve things having spend 14 years as police officer and trained to be professional pilot. I always try to be positive, even in the face adversity and make the best of a bad situation. I understand that I may not be the most qualified candidate for this role, but I can assure I make up for it in picking up new skills quickly and a willingness to learn. Thank you for considering this application.
