George Eddell, Grain Trader for Gleadell Agriculture


"I studied Construction Management and Surveying at Uni – not the most obvious route into grain trading, but that didn’t matter when I started my traineeship. I’ve learnt business skills that could take me to the top, and I get a kick out of making a profit in the grain trade, which changes every day."
