CV Headline

I am an enthusiastic, hard working 21 year old from Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit, fishing and shooting, but as with most people work comes first! When I left school I first of all went to college to study agriculture whilst working 2/3 days a week on a farm and did weekend work on a poultry farm. Since then I’ve been mostly self employed and have done several lambing jobs, have been to New Zealand in 2016, done contract shearing, tractor work, and general farm work. All in all I love the outdoors and try my best at whatever I do
