FG launches survey to identify recruitment challenges and skills gap to support industry

FARMERS Guardian has launched an industry-wide survey to understand more about the skills gap in agriculture, what training opportunities are available and recruitment challenges within the sector.

We are seeking views from across agriculture and are asking employees and employers to share their opinions and experiences about the opportunities for personal development and training within the industry.

 

Anyone who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw and the first four selected will win £50 for their efforts.

 

The survey marks the launch of the third year of FG’s #ThisIsAgriculture campaign, which aims to raise the profile of careers in agriculture and the diverse range of employment opportunities available to those inside and outside of the sector.

 

The initiative is supported by 21 sponsors, comprising farming businesses, organisations and academic institutions, all keen to promote careers in agriculture and the skills shortages within the industry.

 

FG successfully partnered with National Careers Week to promote the #ThisIsAgriculture campaign to school leavers, producing an interactive digital booklet to highlight the range of opportunities within the sector.

 

Moving forward, FG will be examining training gaps within the industry, identifying current recruitment challenges, how the pandemic is affecting key sectors and speaking to both employers and individuals who have been proactively upskilling in their careers and the benefits it has brought both parties.
