Tom Jenks - Leading Jockey Changes Course

A successful former UK National Hunt jockey, who had many winners up and down the country, has recently joined Land Factor.

Tom Jenks rode six times in the Grand National, won ten times at Cheltenham and drove Earth Summit to victory at the Welsh Grand National, before retiring from racing and entering the farming industry.

Tom has managed farms and estates around the world for the past 12 years including Uruguay and New Zealand, before joining Land Factor. 

In his new role, Tom will help to provide advice on all areas of estate management to landowners across the region.

In parallel to his racing career, Tom, originally from Shropshire, used to rent land and was involved in buying and selling cattle.

After retiring from the saddle, Tom headed for New Zealand, where he initially worked for a number of cattle and sheep stations. Tom then bought, developed and ran two farms, while also operating a successful drystock business.  While in NZ he also discovered his passion for breeding and training sheep dogs.  After six years in NZ he sold up and moved, with his family, to West Northumberland in 2008.

This was followed by a move to Uruguay, where he spent five years.  There he not only set up a profitable sheep farming business, but he also developed an 8,000 acre property for a Singapore Investment Fund.  There he was responsible for the management of 2,000 cattle and 5,000 sheep.

Since 2014 he has again been based in Northumberland and will now bring his experience to bear at Land Factor.  Director, Tom Warde-Aldam, said: “Tom will be a great asset to our team.  He has vast and wide-ranging practical experience, which we hope to harness to the benefit of our business and those of our clients.” 

Tom Jenks said “I am really enjoying working at Land Factor and the diversity of the role. I have had a varied career across the world and I am hoping to bring all that experience to my new role in the North of England”.
