Intermediate Level Apprenticeship
We want to recruit someone who enjoys working outdoors in all weathers, who takes an interest in farming techniques, is keen to learn new skills and enjoys the countryside.
This role will provide someone with the tools they need to start a successful career in the farming industry. You will promote a safe, friendly environment whilst completing various tasks in different areas of the business. There is plenty of scope to learn from our experienced team and we are delighted to be able to offer this apprenticeship opportunity for the right candidate.
The successful candidate will undertake general farming duties and arable duties involved in the production of grass, maize and barley and more.
In addition, this role will offer someone more experience than your average farm.
We do a lot of contract work for Heathrow and Windsor Estate. You will need to undertake a CRB check. We work on the farm, as well as carry out landscaping duties, tree planting and snow clearance.
Due to the farm base please think about how you will get to work daily before you apply for this role. There are good train and bus links near the farm.
We ask that all candidates be aware that perfect time-keeping is a must. This is because of some of the contract work we are involved with demands that employees must be on site at a specific time due to security arrangements.
