The latest initiative in the campaign to raise awareness of the careers options available within the high-tech agricultural machinery service industry has been the creation of a short video.

The agricultural service and support industry has changed out of all recognition in recent years, and the number of roles now available under that ‘broad brush’ title is extensive.

To highlight this, the video profiles CLAAS service engineers at all levels of their career, from current apprentices through to service managers, giving a quick oversight of their job, what it involves and the satisfaction they gain from their role.

“Many people fail to appreciate that agriculture is an exciting industry, with machinery that uses state-of-the-art technology on a par with aerospace and other cutting-edge industries,” Trevor Tyrrell, CEO of CLAAS UK said.

“It’s an industry that has embraced the internet, satellite technology and computers like no other, as we continue to develop machinery that will help farmers feed an ever growing population.”

The new ‘Engineer your Career’ video can be viewed via the CLAAS UK Facebook page (, or via the official YourCLAAS Youtube channel ( where, since its launch nearly 10 days ago, the video has already been viewed over 2000 times.
