P.X. Farms Ltd is a professional and highly skilled agribusiness centred around the family estate and run by fourth-generation farmer James Peck.
We’re looking for a full-time, experienced agricultural engineer to join our team and take responsibility and grow the engineering side of the business. This is a new and exciting opportunity to join a well-established agribusiness driving innovation forward.
Managing Director James Peck:
“Without the P.X team, we wouldn’t be where we are today – our workforce is the core of our business. We provide high-quality accommodation to our team and plan working shifts in advance so we are able to give our families real quality of life working in an agricultural environment. This results in staff retention and stability.
We’re always investing in ways to keep our team and those working around them safe, and looking after our team’s health and well being. Recent examples include the new CCTV system on our latest lorries to ensure drivers are more aware of their environment and who is around them, and the purchase of an onsite cherry picker to reduce the need for our team to go up and down ladders.
Together we build the foundation to expand and the opportunity to provide value.”
