Farming background

Tractor driver with 5 seasons experience on arable farms (four seasons with reference Steven Priestley): - Carting corn, potatoes and onions from harvester to various forms of storage. - Forklift & telehandler operation including load/unload/warehousing of tonne boxes and pallets. - Soil cultivation - mainly discing & rolling. - Routine maintenance and fuelling of vehicles and machinery. - Other manual work as required eg fencing, irrigation. I worked on farms seasonally while a student 2004-2008, learning new skills quickly as I was required to do different tasks. I found the work enjoyable and rewarding, proving myself capable of working quickly and to a high standard, whether as part of a team or individually. Since my last farming job in 2008, I have held office jobs in London and am keen for a break. Therefore I'm looking to go back to something I know and enjoy, initially for the season.

Hobbies

Cycling, running, volunteering for first aid charity.
