General Farm Worker Job <:>South Norfolk<:>

Farm TypeArable, Other

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who is looking to further their career in agriculture.  The successful applicant will be expected to help out across all areas of this 2,000 acre farm, but will mainly work on the arable side of the business.  Aside from that, we also have a large duck rearing unit and around 200 acres of woodland to maintain.   We are looking for someone who is a fast learner and has a wide range of skills.  The ideal candidate will have mastered a range of techniques, including ploughing, drilling, hedging, fertiliser spreading and combine driving.  We also need a relief spray operator, so the ability to do this would count in your favour.  We believe in giving people responsibility and as part of a small team, you will be handed the chance to shape the way we do things here.  Farming is evolving and we are determined to keep reinvesting in our staff and our business.  We are also keen to embrace technology, and recently purchased an Isaria crop sensor, which allows us to vary nitrogen applications.  You would not be expected to be too heavily involved in the duck business, but you would need to help out occasionally with mucking out and washing the buildings.  This happens roughly every 7 or 8 weeks.  In the summer we would want you to be able to cart grain, push up heaps, load lorries, stack bales and  drive the combine.  The most important qualification to have will be a telehandler certificate.  Other useful qalifications include PA1, PA2, PA4S, tracked vehicle, chainsaw and pest control.   We don't normally offer accommodation with jobs, but there is a possibility that we could arrange something for the right candidate.  If you are an enthusiastic and skilled farm worker who wants to make progress in your career, then this could be the job for you.  A sense of humour always helps too...
