Tractor operators must be able to work independently and as part of a team. Driving tractors involves sitting still for long periods. However, frequent standing, bending, lifting and carrying may be necessary, particularly when implements need to be attached to machinery.
Tractor drivers work on large and small farms. They may work early mornings, evenings and weekends, and are expected to work overtime when necessary. Jobs tend to be advertised in the local press and through recruitment agencies.
Salaries for newly appointed tractor operators start at around £13,000 a year. Experienced tractor drivers can earn up to £19,000 a year. Actual rates of pay vary, depending on employers and workplace locations. In addition to a basic salary, many tractor drivers are provided with free or low-rent accommodation.
With qualifications and experience, tractor operators can gain the skills they require to operate more complex farmyard machinery. Those employed on large farms are likely to benefit from opportunities to specialise.
