I enjoyed spending my spare time outdoors: I have a Labrador who I enjoy exploring and walking with. I also ride horses and enjoy clay pigeon shooting; I hold a valid shotgun certificate.
Farming work started during covid as a way to prevent being furloughed. I work on a Scottish sporting estate and have an understanding of day to day operations and demands of land management.
My roles previously have been office based on estates but after spending the last 18months assisting the farm team, I am keen to pursue a career in agriculture.
