Open job vacancies
Straw Chaser Driver (Fixed term contract for harvest)
An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic individual to join us for harvest on our arable farm based in South Norfolk, a short drive from the city of Norwich and about 2 hours/100 miles from London. We grow wheat, barley, rapeseed, and sugar beet. We also buy and sell straw and offer our services to other growers for contract.
The Straw Chaser Driver is responsible for operating a Fastrac 2170 & Heath Super Chaser combination during the harvest period. Other responsibilities may include helping with hedge cutting, cultivations and other regular tasks, including machinery and other estate maintenance, as required.
Our operation requires that the jobholder be flexible, self-motivated and prepared to put in regular overtime during our busiest period. Our customers expect our Chaser Driver to have good record keeping and people skills. Good hands on workshop/maintenance skills are essential, as is the ability to work alone or in a team. Experience of operating heavy machinery is essential, ideally in an agricultural environment. The jobholder must hold a valid driving licence (UK or equivalent overseas entitlement). Experience of straw baling work, operating a tractor mounted hedge cutter and cultivation equipment is desirable but full training will be given.
We offer competitive rates of pay based on experience. Good overtime and development opportunities are available for the right candidate. We run a mix of machinery ages and marques, with most crop work carried out using Fendt 724/MF6499/MF7626s. Convenient accommodation and pool car/van are available if required. We are 30 minutes/11 miles drive from Norwich and close to the A11 for access to London and the Midlands.
