I'd be happy to do it.
Obviously if the wind is calm I'll need time off for flying.
Also if it's a clear, dry day I'll need time off for flying.
On those real nice hot harvest time evenings it's a nice time to fly so I'll probably not be able to come in.
Rainy days are good days to get workshop stuff done. Do they have a workshop ? Is it big enough to get an aircraft in ?
Anyway, like I say, that aside, I reckon I'm your man.
(Oh and I don't do weekends as I prefer to be down the airfield or if the weather is nice, flying)
It's a lovely day

I was going to apply, but are there special conditions for OAP's?

I will need a bit of kiddy fiddling in the afternoon between two and four pm, and some copies of 'Razzle' to peruse.

I will also need access to a good toilet.

Is there somewhere to park my caravan?

I shall need Sunday's off to go to church.................. :roll:

I'll have it.

Will they teach me to drive a tractor?

Thanks everyone for you response.
A bit more about the job.
It has a very big work shop with fitters, not that they will be able to come out after 5pm and fix your tractor, or at all at weekends.
You can have as much time off as you like. As long as you come in everyday you are ask to do so, even on your days off.
There is good kit and modern, not that you will get to drive it.
The boss is good, not that you will have any thing to do with him, he may let you clean his Range Rover.
You will need to be skilled, when told that you will be taking a John Deere out, you will be expected to know which tractor the JD is.
Any more questions? if so please PM me.
All correspondents are in the up most secret.
Thanks.
