An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic individual to become part of the team on a 2000 acre arable farm based in South Norfolk. We grow wheat, barley, oats, rapeseed, and sugar beet. We also buy and sell straw and offer our services to other growers for contract.
The Skilled Arable Operator is part of a small team. The jobholder will assist with tasks such as baling, bale carting, drilling, cultivations, excavation work. The jobholder will assist with other regular tasks, including machinery and estate maintenance, as required.
Our operation requires that the jobholder be flexible, self-motivated and prepared to put in regular overtime during our busiest periods. Good hands on workshop/maintenance skills are essential, as is the ability to work alone or in a team. Experience as a tractor driver (or equivalent arable/livestock machinery operative) is essential. Experience of straw contracting is desirable. The jobholder must hold a valid driving licence and be willing to undertake further training to obtain and maintain operating certificates. Valid PA1, PA2, PA4 certificates and telehandler certificate are desirable.
We offer competitive rates of pay based on experience. Good overtime and development opportunities are available for the right candidate. We run a mix of machinery ages and marques, including MF and Fendt models.
