Other Information

I won the McClellan Silver Award for the best prospectus farmer during my studies at the Royal Agricultural University in 2015

I hold a number current training awards such as the, forklift certificate, PA 1 and 2, NROSO registered and trailer test. I am currently raising funds to work towards completing BASIS and FACTS training, as I believe this will help decision making out in the field and at times of necessary crop husbandry. I am computer literate, being familiar with a variety of software plus Microsoft products enabling myself to design and construct spreadsheets with formulations. This being a crucial part of my university course, helping to manage a farm business through all aspects from machinery work rates to gross margins and financial projections.

I have grown up on a farm in the heart of Cheshire, and have had a passion for agriculture since an early age, with the family mainly involved in the dairy and arable sector. However, I am looking to further my career with a passion for farming, through the management aspect, though still being a key player and getting stuck into the hard graft when needed whilst managing a team. I have the drive and motivation to undertake this role and the ability to conduct any task thrown at me.

I hope you consider me for this role, and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
