An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic lead operator in our small team. Duties will include taking ownership of tasks including drilling & crop establishment, crop nutrition, cultivation, irrigation and QC of crops in store (grain and potatoes) We grow 8 different crops including sugar beet and potatoes and virtually all operations are in house, so there is plenty of variety! We also do some contract work and keep b&b pigs in straw yards. Establishment includes direct drilling and some cultivation. We grow cover crops before most spring crops too, and always have a trial of some sort on the go. Ideas and opinions welcomed and encouraged to keep us moving forward.
Experience of machinery operation, particularly regarding drilling and GPS desirable. Training and regular cpd available.
A proactive and practical approach is required, as is a willingness to do a range of jobs, from the mundane to the technical. Commitment and flexibility appreciated and reciprocated
