The time is ripe. Farms need pickers – more than ever. Students need summer work – more than ever. We need to get the right farmers and the right students together – and keep Britain fed.
Pro-Force, one of the most respected recruiters of seasonal labour, and TARGETjobs, one of the most trusted names in graduate careers, are joining forces to make this happen. There are start dates from early June onwards for residential placements of six weeks or more.
UniGrow is starting as a small pilot project with a very limited number of places (initially 20–50), targeted at students and recent graduates from UK universities. We’re now looking for participants with priority given to applicants who apply in groups of 2–6. The plan is to expand during the summer of 2020 and again next year – possibly to other “key worker” sectors. We are not part of the big agricultural recruitment campaigns that have recently been in the media, but we are part of a highly regulated industry with strict rules about health, safety, pay and conditions.
Warning: UniGrow could be the most lucrative, educational and fun holiday job of your life. The skills and experience you gain will set you apart as you pursue your future career. BUT be prepared to work your butt off and get your hands dirty!
We are currently accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to groups of 2–6 people.
