I joined Hall Hunter straight after graduating with a BSc Agriculture from the University of Reading. Between the second and final year of my degree, I completed a placement year at a rural accountancy firm and farm consultancy company.

I heard about the role at Hall Hunter via a friend from university. She graduated the year before me and is currently Harvest Manager at Leythorne and Donaldsons nurseries.

When I began the graduate scheme at Heathlands, everyone was very welcoming which made a big difference and helped me to quickly settle into my new environment. I spent my first few months out on the farm, learning about everything from growing to harvesting. After a while, I joined the finance department, where I was immediately made to feel like one of the team.

I’m currently studying for my accountancy exams, so my immediate short term goals are to become a qualified accountant. Once I’m qualified, I hope to continue to gain more knowledge and experience within Hall Hunter.

Although I’m based at Heathlands, I visit our other farms on a regular basis. The finance team are there to support all the farms, so we like to make sure that we’re up-to-speed and offering the right level of input at all times.

During my time here, I’ve seen a keen focus placed on the importance of everyone working alongside the Hall Hunter principles. This creates a really strong sense of unity and camaraderie within the company, which is a major contributor to the happiness of our teams.
