Work Wanted
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to apply for a position as a groundsman or similar.
I am a highly organised, energetic and motivated individual with 40 years experience in the agricultural industry having managed my own sheep and grain farm for the past 35 years.
In my role as a farm business owner and operator, I was responsible for organising all activities associated with crop production, including machinery operation, repairs and maintenance, overseeing weed and pest control measures, stock control and budgeting, liaising with and supervising contractors, working with owners and agronomists to achieve production targets and developing efficient systems in areas such as work planning and staff management.
A large part of my role was to oversee and manage crop production and employees associated with this.  To this end I have performed hazard identification and risk management assessments in an agricultural machinery environment. I am able to operate small machinery such as chainsaws, mowers, line trimmers and ATV vehicles.
I have basic computer skills in Word and Outlook and am able to operate machinery with TopCon guidance system/auto steer.  I have an HC and R driver’s licence, chemical handler’s certificate, and bush fire fighter’s certificate.
I believe I am a down to earth and calm person with excellent communication skills that I employ in my dealings with workers, contractors, suppliers and others. I am very much a team player who also enjoys independent work.  I am happy to work outdoors in all weather conditions and for extended periods of time when required in order to get a job done.

Please find my resume attached (here) and I look forward to being able to discuss any upcoming positions with you further.
Kind regards
Jon English
