Young people offered training scheme to get foot on farming ladder

The graduate scheme, set up by Farmcare Ltd, will offer the next generation of farmers the chance to ‘build-your-own’ placement.

 

It will offer students the chance to personalise the scheme and work towards areas of choice.

 

 

Hoping to attract the ‘brightest and best graduates’, the scheme will encourage youngsters to specialise in their favoured area before undertaking a placement outside of the business: a skill-swap scheme with like-minded businesses, heading abroad and a chance to gain hands-on experience.

 

Claire Sproston, head of people and communication, said the scheme was looking for ‘passionate individuals’.

 

She said: “The team at Farmcare is central to the progress we make as a business: there is a wealth of talent out there and it is exciting to know we will be cherry picking the best of the crop to join our singularly talented team.

 

"The graduate trainees will join Farmcare at the most bustling time of year: harvest, giving them an excellent opportunity to gain insight into a successful agricultural business and show us their fresh ideas and perspective.”

 

The scheme will also incorporate science and research.

 

Anyone aged 18 and over is eligable to apply, whether a ‘recent university graduate, have worked within the farming business or are new to the world of agriculture’.

 

Applicants can apply until January 27. More information found here.
