Farming background

I have recently returned from working overseas in the New Zealand dairy industry, where, for the past 6 years I have been responsible for managing large scale dairy herds and farms. During that time, I have had the opportunity to gain valuable experience in people management and leadership whilst also building on my technical knowledge and expertise in addition to the business and financial management.

Within my roles as Farm Manager I have led the team and my colleagues to successfully achieve business and industry targets and KPIs, whilst also mentoring and coaching junior members of the team to achieve success within their roles.

I work well as a leader, team member and as an individual. I am motivated, self-disciplined and I enjoy the challenge of meeting and exceeding targets and expectations and achieving success.
