EVER-CHANGING legislation in the farming industry has paved the way for growth at a rural business administrator.
Helmsley-based Cundalls RFAS has seen the restructure of its team to meet the increased demand for administrators for farm businesses.
Jean Barnett, who has worked as a farm secretary for the business since 2001, has been promoted to run the Helmsley office in a move aimed at allowing managing director Christine Thompson more time to develop the business.
Elsewhere in the team, Hazel Penfold, who started with the company in 2009, has now achieved her formal qualifications and will be taking on more responsibility, while Rachel Hall, one of the original employees of Cundalls, has returned to join the team in Helmsley.
Hellen Tordoff is the newest employee, having spent eight years working for a pig genetics company and EBLEX.
Having recently gained her AAT2 book keeping qualification, Ms Tordoff will be working both as a farm secretary and in marketing and promotion.
Christine said: “Farmers are constantly under pressure to comply with ever changing legislation within the industry. We alleviate this burden, leaving them to concentrate on the actual farming. “Knowing we have a passionate team with a wealth of experience puts us in a very strong position.” moving forward.”
