Working for R W Crawford

So…What is it like to work for R W Crawford?

workign crawfords1Our newly qualified technician, Clarke Minot, started his career with R W Crawford in May 2011. Clarke is based in our Essex Depot.

Over a course of 3 years, Clarke attended the AGCO dealership apprentice scheme. This meant that Clarke would go on block release to Warwickshire College to study a land-based engineering course.

“The best thing about being an apprentice is that you are training to get a qualification and getting paid at the same time.”

Each year, Clarke spent 12 weeks at college with the remainder spent at the depot.

At R W Crawford we feel it is vital that we support the apprenticeship scheme that AGCO provide, as we need to invest in our industry’s future. Without up and coming technicians, the industry would struggle.

Hannah Catt our Sales and Accounts Admin joined R W Crawford in April 2013. Hannah is based in our Kent Depot. Hannah has always had a keen interest in Agriculture, from owning her own Cows and Sheep, to previously being a member of Young Farmers. 

“I was attracted to working for R W Crawford as it is a family run firm, at the time when I started, the Kent depot was in its final stages of development and it was an exciting prospect being able to start working for a company in a new state of the art depot!”  Hannah explains.

This allowed Hannah to learn the ropes and feel confident in taking on her new role in the Kent depot.  “I wouldn’t be able to do what I do now without the six weeks of training I underwent. With the support from the team in Essex, it has allowed me to use my knowledge gained from the training to confidently carry out my day to day tasks.”
