Job for Skilled Sprayer Driver/Relief Potato Harvester Driver - 4300ac <=>Suffolk<=>

Farm TypeArable

Hall Farm based on the outskirts of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds is a progressive family run business where the Long Family have farmed for over four generations. We are very proud of our family heritage, dedicated team, state of the art machinery and our modern forward-thinking approach to farming.

Growing over 4,300 acres, Hall Farm’s crops include potatoes, onions, sugar beet and cereals, supplying our produce to the major supermarkets. The family and committed team at Hall Farm take great pride in every single acre that’s grown on the farm. An exciting opportunity has now become available to join the business as a Senior Arable Operator. You will take the lead role operating a first class 36 meter Rogator, self-propelled, 6000 litre sprayer. Fertiliser spreading using a Bredal F10 alongside other general tractor work will also form a part of your role. Previous experience in a similar position is a must along with PA1 and PA2. This is a fantastic opportunity to join our highly motivated, forward thinking team in a senior position. You will naturally have great attention to detail with a can-do attitude. If you have Telehandler or Forklift experience this will be an advantage, as would the operation of a potato harvester, however, full training will be provided to the right candidate.

At Hall Farm, family is important to us and we know it will be to you too, therefore we can offer generous accommodation in close proximity of the town and local schools. Flexible hours during non-peak periods can also be accommodated. A competitive salary would of course also be offered.
