I demonstrate machinery to customers.  I get to spend a lot of time demonstrating combine harvesters and the larger more exciting machines!  I grew up on a family farm and always knew I wanted to work in agriculture, but didn’t want to work on the farm.   I decided to go down an engineering route during my A-levels and then spent a year in Australia driving combine harvesters.   When I returned, I studied Agricultural Mechanisation at Harper Adams University.  It’s an exciting sector to work in with plenty of opportunities that aren’t just driving a tractor on a farm – some are dirty and some are clean.  Don’t just stand there; give it all you’ve got!
