Job for Experienced Arable Operator - permanent position on arable farm <>Nottinghamshire<>

Farm TypeArable

We are a family run arable farm seeking a full time experienced farm worker to join our business. Based near the Notts/Lincs border.  We farm 950 acres of cereals on mainly heavy clay soils. Working directly alongside the farm owner, who has a keen eye for detail, the role involves all aspects of arable farm work and in particular, cultivations with CAT challenger, fertiliser application, grain store management, drilling and potentially some spraying and combining. Presently all of the main farming operations are carried out by the owner who is now looking for someone to share the work load with and therefore the job role has the potential to expand with the individuals experience and desire to learn new skills. This is a fantastic opportunity as there will be no restrictions to the range of jobs the successful candidate will be given provided they can demonstrate a high level of workmanship and a willingness to undertake more responsibility. Additional training will be made available to the right person providing they demonstrate a commitment to learn. We have recently relocated to a new site and built all new grain stores, yard and workshop facilities etc. Further development is planned and we would expect you to assist with this. Good workshop and fabrication skills would be an advantage. PA1 / PA2 and forklift certificates would be advantageous. Character and personality is as important as skills / experience, however additional training can be provided if there are any gaps in your skill set. A non-smoker with a good sense of humour who's as happy using a grease gun as they are drilling a field would fit in well!
