I am a current student at the University of Salford studying property and real estate this summer I will be in Edinburgh from the end of June till mid September. I am looking to do some manual and agricultural work ideally on a farm over the next few months. I am a hardworking, strong and committed individual who enjoys working in outside environments. I have previously worked on a friend’s dairy farm where I was required to milk cows, lay bedding and support the feeding of livestock. Whilst doing these jobs I have gained experience in using tractors, trailers and manitous as well as carrying a full clean UK driving license and having driven a range of vehicles I am a confident driver. From a young age a have also used many weapon systems, with this skill I have helped out with lamping and pest control on a friend’s farm. From working on farms and being an army reservist solider for three years I have the skills and mentality to work on a farm. I am used to working long hours and doing shift work during antisocial hours so am completely comfortable with the hours and commitment required for agricultural work. My pervious experience in working in several bars I learnt how to work well individually and within a team. Being a physically strong and fit person I like doing a range of jobs where I can apply my strength. As a confident and driven worker I apply all my skills and knowledge to complete the task ahead of me. Overall I want to work in a hard and challenging environment where I can apply my skill set and do jobs that I take great pride and joy doing. I look forward to hearing back from you and hope we can work together.
