Other Information

I am a well presented, well mannered, well spoken and polite individual. I pride myself on my excellent communication skills; I have often been complimented on these within my past employment roles. I have a full, clean UK driving license and own my own car. I work well as part of a team or by myself; I am able to lead others or settle into a role as a team member too. I will not shy away from any task, and I relish a challenge and being made to use my own initiative within problem-solving situations. I always aim to complete all tasks to the best of my abilities, and I am capable of being left to work alone and use my own initiative. I do not require constant reassurance from others, but am also more than happy to ask for help if need be, if I am unsure and do not want to make a mistake. I will always prioritise my work and am flexible and willing to work unsociable hours if I am required to do so. I feel that I have a calm and professional manner, which is essential to the workplace and can be applied to all different roles within different industries. I have a slight competitive edge to my personality, due to competing in Tokon Do Karate competitions, and training and competing with my dogs in dog agility competitions and field trials. I am computer literate, and am confident and experienced with using different computer programmes and entering data and information. Out of work I enjoy baking & cooking; hosting dinner parties for family and friends, and swimming and other forms of keeping fit such as Zumba classes and jogging. I am passionate about Agriculture and British farming; having a keen interest in keeping livestock and British and local food produce. I hold a Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate; which is a useful qualification for most roles, and a tractor driven front end loader course ticket. I hold PA1 and PA6 sprayer course certificates, and have attended grassland management courses, as well as various DairyPro meetings to further my knowledge on cattle.

Marital status

I have a partner, who is self employed in agriculture and we would be looking for a job with accommodation for the both of us and our three dogs (a labrador and two terriers). These are indoor dogs, the labrador is a working dog and they are well behaved. Ideally accommodation would not be a mobile home but a house or cottage if possible. We would be happy to pay all bills. In my current accommodation (3 bed cottage) we pay a small amount of token rent.
