The Wicken Farms Co is a 950ha diverse estate located in the stunning landscape of North Norfolk. The philosophy of the farm is to work in tandem with nature, to produce some of the county’s highest quality crops. Our bar is set high, our ambition drives us.
The company is working hard to embrace new technology and best practice to realise the potential of the Estate. We have a long-term plan to invest in our business and that includes recruiting the best talent the industry has to offer.
We are looking for an experienced full-time sprayer and harvester operator for our farm business growing combinable crops, potatoes and sugar beet with irrigation. This role will complement our existing skilled team and strengthen our skills base across the farming operation.
We are looking for talent. The successful candidate needs to have a high level of technical ability coupled with a passion for farming. We want someone who will take pride in their work, has a positive work ethic, attention to detail and enjoys getting results. The candidate needs to be able to take overall responsibility for their operation but also work as part of the wider team, supporting their colleagues to get the work done.
As a minimum, the person we seek must have PA1 and PA2, telehandler certificate and a full driving licence. They need the skills and experience to maintain their own equipment and be flexible with their working hours (based on a 39-hour week, plus overtime).
In return, you will be provided with a high standard of accommodation on the Estate and a remuneration package that is commensurate to your experience. We invest and support our staff through training and further learning opportunities.
