My client operates a professionally run 6000 acre farm in Shropshire. They grow a mixture of cereals, oilseed rape and also specialise in growing high quality potatoes.
Primarily they are looking for someone to drive one of their two 8240 Axial Flow Combines harvesting 5,000 acres of cereals a year.

In the intervening time there is plenty of other work including; irrigation, digger work on a 9 tonner, building work and maintenance. Through the winter they also run a staff rotation on potato grading.
This is a hands on and varied role which requires a candidate that is hard working and capable of performing a number of duties who has excellent attention to detail.
