Can you help with a work placement?

Jobfarm is funded by the Royal Highland Show Society & aims to increase the awareness of the many interesting and varied job opportunities within the agricultural sector by facilitating work placement opportunities to anyone over the age of 16.

 Jobfarm acts as the link between the student and the host, we do all the groundwork, to match the student with the host. We then make an introduction between the parties and leave the next steps up to yourselves.   Being a host farm will require some effort but the rewards it can bring are often long term. Many work experience placements lead to other opportunities.

 Jobfarm supports host farms by answering many of the questions: What is required of the host farm?  What insurance do I need? What am I expected to provide for the student? How long will the placement last for?

 We have the following placements currently available for a one-week placement.

Student from Ayr has previously studied Animal Care which involved a four-week residential placement at SRUC Barony this included a few days a week placement on the farm in Barony helping with things such as bedding and feeding the calves as well as helping with the lambs.  Happy to travel to find a place and flexible on days and hours.

Student from Inverness looking for any sector experience, worked on parents farm able has his own transport willing to travel up to an hour.
