How to Apply

The Elveden Estate is set in the heart of East Anglia, on the Norfolk Suffolk border. The 22,500 acre ring fenced estate is one of the largest single farm units in lowland Britain.

Around 50% of the estate is farmed, producing around 10,000t cereals, 24,000t potatoes, 22,000t onions and 16,000t carrots. The remaining land area is managed through several environmental schemes and includes 3,600 acres of Breckland heathland.

The role:

Elveden are seeking a hard working, enthusiastic student to complete a placement year with us. The operational role will expose you to all aspects of modern farming activities across both the cereal and vegetables enterprises. Opportunities will be tailored to suit and develop the skills of the individual.

You would be part of a large, experienced team of around 20 full time farm operators, supported by an extra 5-10 seasonal workers and contractors in peaks. Teamwork is an important skill for the successful candidate, and the ability to work long hours for a sustained period is necessary.

Suitable candidates will ideally possess a telehandler certificate. Accommodation is available if required.
