Other Information

Following a job change in order to relocate to the Coventry/Warwickshire area to be nearer family, I am now looking for a longterm position in an estate maintenance or similar type of role. I loved my previous maintenance job on a dairy farm and managing a blend facility, and my boss was sad to see me leave, but my wife who had followed me around the world for years wanted us to return to the Warwick area. Unfortunately in order to do that I needed to take my current job and weekly commute until the kids reached a good point to move schools and we could sell and buy a new house. That is now water under the bridge and I am looking for a new maintenance position.

Marital status

Married with 3 teenage children aged 14-18.

Where are you currently living?West Midlands
Do you have the right to work in the UK?Yes
Farming background

3 years experience as maintenance worker on large dairy farm, alongside this responsibility I also managed the operation of a cattle and sheep feed blend facility. I also gained general building and handyman experience prior to this during a period of self employment after leaving the army on completion of a full 22 year career.


Walk dogs, car and motorcycle maintenance, read non-fiction books, usually have a 'project' on the go in the garage, play piano (badly), taxi driver for the kids and hang glide (although I haven't found time to fly at all in the past 12 months). I am also an out of date judo and sailing instructor, these too have unfortunately fallen by the wayside.
