It is important to the family - we strive to ensure that we recognise the commitment and loyalty of our employees and have awarded in excess of 100 25 years’ long service awards. Sally Tew, Personnel Director adds, “We are a Company committed to developing our employees through training in the workplace. Within our Service department we have many examples of employees enjoying rewarding job roles, which were developed on the back of studying on an Apprenticeship scheme. We regularly recruit apprentices to ensure long-term sustainability to the agricultural industry and to our family business.”

We are diverse

Our busy Service departments offer opportunities for experienced technicians, whether fully or partly qualified; trainee technicians in ‘taster’ roles and Apprenticeships in engineering. If you are interested in developing a career in sales our demonstrator/sales support role provides a stepping-stone into field sales. The high tech sector of applications technologies is a strong growth area and we offer all staff involved in customer technologies sales and aftersales support the opportunity for ongoing development and training in this area.
