Become a Feed the Nation - Farm Worker
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, UK farms have a shortage of seasonal labour to help pick and pack fruit and vegetables.
What you will be doing
We are calling for workers to apply for these paid positions on local farms across the UK. We are working as part of the UK’s Alliance of Ethical Labour Providers. Concordia, HOPS and Fruitful all operate to ensure the very best in participant experience and ethics – and we have partnered together to help find motivated individuals to help Feed the Nation.
Working on farms can be tough – It can be hard work, long hours, early starts, in sometimes difficult weather conditions. We want to be open and honest with you. You will be at least paid minimum wage and many farms pay National Living Wage or more, depending on how much fruit and/or vegetables you harvest, and the role you do on the farm.
All successful applicants to our programme will receive high-quality training – which you are paid to complete. Through us and our partners you will have comprehensive travel and health insurance and be supported 24hours a day should you need it. Rest assured, all farms, many of which are open fields, are following the correct procedures around safe working conditions during the Coronavirus outbreak. Ensuring our workers' safety is our top priority. You can be safe in the knowledge that every site has been inspected by us, to ensure that it abides by the highest ethical and legal standards. All of our partners are highly experienced and agricultural recruitment specialists, and hold a GLAA licence, meaning you are in safe hands.
What you will get
All roles offered through us come with training, which can last up to three weeks to give you the best chance of maximising your income whilst on a farm placement. You will be paid whilst you complete this training. As one of the sector’s leading ethical provider of seasonal labour, every job with us comes with free insurance for all our participants which includes travel, health and dental cover.
