CV Headline

 Although i have spent the last 18 years working in the oil & gas sector, i have a wealth of experience in farming, both livestock and arable, contacting, and haulage.

Although currently based in Aberdeen, i am more than happy to relocate, assuming assistance is offered with finding accomodation. I am a very keen & enthusiastic worker, able to work alone, as part of a team, and under my own initiative where required. I have a good attention to detail, i am a skilled machinery operator with a lot of experience, albeit somewhat out of date.
