Recruitment solution tackling workforce crisis

A nationwide recruitment campaign to help produce, manufacture and deliver food to meet increasing consumer demand amid the coronavirus pandemic has been launched by the agricultural industry.

Last week, we saw the industry welcome ‘key worker’ status, and many essential agricultural businesses are now faced with unprecedented demand.

Retail demand for milk, eggs, and meat is reported to have increased by up to 30%, however, after shortfalls in migrant labour, many businesses are anticipating a shortfall of about 80% of the required workforce.
With farm groups calling on a ‘land army’ of temporary workers to support the industry and keep the nation fed, Jobs in Agriculture can offer a helping hand.

If you're in need of temporary staff, Jobs in Agriculture will list your roles for free.

This means we can help you to get your jobs in front of over 6,500 active jobseekers, who are readers of Farmers Guardian, Dairy Farmer, Arable Farmer and attendees of LAMMA Show. You will receive applications immediately by email.

Simply get in touch with Katie O'Hagan on 01772 799454 or

Or, request a callback.

Jobs in Agriculture matches domestic employees with job vacancies across all areas of the sector. 

We understand that furloughed workers will be able to collect wages alongside working a second job during the outbreak, widening the recruitment pool even further. 

Jobs in Agriculture is powered by Farmers Guardian, which has been at the heart of agriculture for over 175 years, supporting and championing British Farming.
