Employment service for labour shortage

Scotland’s farming union has launched a service to help Scottish fruit and vegetable growers recruit workers who have lost their jobs or are on unpaid leave due to coronavirus.

The web-based service can be found at: https://www.nfus.org.uk/coronavirus/employment-opportunities-on-farms.aspx

For those businesses looking to recruit, there is a labour requirement form to complete and return to NFUS allowing details to be added to an interactive map of employment opportunities.  For those looking for employment, they are asked to apply using the contact details provided by each farm on the website.

This will hopefully be extended to other sectors if this service delivers for all
