Staff Profile – Daniel Duffy, United Kingdom

What made you choose to work for Jackson Holmes?

I applied for a job with Jackson Holmes after reading a bit about the company online. I wanted to get experience working for a large contracting operation running modern machinery and after watching a few videos on YouTube decided it was the place to go.

Did you enjoy working for Jackson Holmes?

I had a blast working for Jackson Holmes, the thing that made it enjoyable was the good team of lads I was working alongside. It was a lot of hard work but we managed to get a bit of time to play hard at the same time.

How did you find the management at Jackson Holmes?

The management at Jackson Holmes were top notch. It was a very well run operation with every employee being informed by text what machine they were driving and what they were doing the next day, so everyone arrived at the yard already aware if what they were to do. If I ever encountered a problem Todd and Andrew were very helpful and would do everything they could to get the problem sorted. If anything mechanical went astray you could rely on Tim the in house mechanic to come to the rescue and get your machine back in working order in no time.

Would you recommend Jackson Holmes to other people?

I have already recommended that a few of my friends apply to Jackson Holmes if they head to New Zealand, and I hope to get back for another season myself in the future.

What aspect of working for Jackson Holmes did you enjoy?

I enjoyed everything about working for Jackson Homes. The machinery was always impeccably well maintained, modern and nice to drive. The other employees both seasonal and full time were always up for a laugh and I gained some invaluable experience.
