Farming background

I’m a very self motivated and friendly person, I will always perform to a very high standard and I do not shy away from hard work. I enjoy new and challenging tasks as well as working practically by myself or with others. I have a lot of experience working with people of different back grounds and working in various agricultural applications. I would describe myself as easily adaptable to any outside working environment and situation. I like to try my hand at any new and challenging task as I’m always trying to learn new things and broaden my experience. I especially enjoy working with machinery and anything mechanical. I have acquired a huge range of skills that accommodate all aspects of Tractors driving and maintenance, as well as a great understanding of GPS systems and land management. I am mechanically minded and can find solutions to problems quickly. I like to help with the decision making as I work well under pressure. I’m a very competent driver and I have a lot of UK and EU miles behind me to show this.
