We are a diverse business, based in Devon, and have been trading since 1987, when we started Agricultural Contracting, specialising in arable operations. Over the years this has lead into large scale farming, with around 2500 acres currently being farmed in house. In addition to this, we have many contracting customers, where we do everything from one off jobs to whole farm contracts.
The business is managed by Mark Stevens and a team of 3 office staff, who are supported by an additional 15 staff including tractor drivers, lorry drivers, telescopic handler drivers, mechanics and grain store operatives, all working together as a team, much of the time competing with the trials of the British weather.
We have a company training policy and are continuously training our staff to improve and develop their skills.
We are looking for 2 harvest workers to work in the driers and grain stores from mid August to the end of October.
Applicants need to be able to operate computers, work under pressure, and have some general mechanical aptitude.
Job involves operating the weighbridges, sampling lorries, controlling the drier and associated plant, working in a team with others.
A telehandler qualification would be an advantage.
Please apply to Mark Stevens initially by email in confidence to: firstname.lastname@example.org
