Whether you’re starting out in your career, wanting to progress to the next level or looking for a change, there’s something to suit everyone. And you don’t need to be from a farming background either.
We’ve taken a look at some exciting jobs available in farming! Why not see if you’ve got what it takes?
Emily didn’t think she’d ever work in horticulture, but when she saw an exciting graduate training programme through Management Development Services (MDS), she decided to give it a go.
The programme gave her the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge through paid work-placed training, which ignited her passion for the industry.
Now working as fruit manager for a horticulture business that produces delicious berries for leading UK supermarkets, Emily talks about why she loves her career, the technology she uses and why her job helps make a positive impact on the environment.
Our “Roots to success” blog showcases the inspiring stories of people working in the UK’s agriculture and horticulture industries. We aim to highlight the incredible talent and innovation emerging from these sectors and encourage others to explore exciting and fulfilling career opportunities. Through this blog, we’ll provide a platform for sharing experiences and insights and celebrating the achievements of those working in this vital industry.
