Josh Misselbrook’s journey to become a Livestock and Field Technician began after failing his A-levels. As the son of a research scientist from Rothamsted Research, he knew he wanted to work outside in agriculture and through his part time job at a dairy farm, he completed his agricultural apprenticeship.

When his current role was advertised at a place he had visited as a child with his Dad, he knew he had to go for it. He never thought he would be a crucial part of the research and innovation system.
