Skilled Tractor Driver

South Shropshire

We require an experienced and versatile individual to take the lead in all tractor work on our 900 acre mixed family farm. The acreage is split over 3 sites around the market town of Bridgnorth, with arable ground at each farm. A dairy herd and the majority of the cattle are based at the main home farm. Sheep are spread across all 3 farms.

The role

This is a varied job that will require the successful candidate to carry out a number of different tasks.

Key responsibilities will be spraying, fertilising, cultivating, drilling, combining, forage harvesting and maintenance of machinery.

Occasional duties will also involve assisting with bedding, feeding and handling of cattle, as well as seasonal sheep work.

This is a family farm run by a partnership, however there is potential for the right individual to take on more of a managerial role.

Role requirements

This position requires an experienced person who has a proven track record of all-round tractor driving. The successful candidate must have the relevant driving qualifications and PA1&2 sprayer operator qualifications.

Remuneration and benefits

We offer a competitive salary reflective of skills and experience, regular time off and a 3 bedroom cottage in a quiet village within walking distance of the main home farm. NRoSO membership and ongoing training will be provided.

The farm is based in picturesque South Shropshire, with the local market town of Bridgnorth within 15 minutes drive. There is a choice of very good local Primary and Secondary schools. Further afield there is the historic county town of Shrewsbury and the city of Wolverhampton with its main rail links.
