Farming background

I am currently working as a field based commercial vehicle sales specialist. This role requires a high level of involvement from the point of sale to the delivery of the vehicle. Within this role I liaise with a variety of professionals on a daily basis to ensure each vehicle is bespokly designed, delivered on time and with exceptional customer service. I arrange finance agreements, complete administrative duties, market the companies products, provide presentations to large groups of potential customers and generate new leads on a daily basis, whilst account managing an existing client base.  I also have 14 years of care work behind me for the elderly, adults and children with various disabilities and being able to ensure my up most at all times is very important to me.  I have achieved short to long term targets and goals within all previous roles and feel that my experiences enable me to use my own initiative; however I feel it is valuable to learn from others and contribute when working within a team, in order to achieve more. Although my current and some previous roles are not related to the agricultural industry, I am a hardworking motivated and enthusiastic individual, who is passionate to learn, continue and grow a career within the farming industry. I would very much love the opportunity to continue within a career I have studied for and that I enjoy so very much. Thank you for your time.


I enjoy walking, horse riding when possible and spending time with family and friends.
