Searching for a new career in agriculture? The Livestock Event, staged at The NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 July will offer some fresh ideas in a new feature dedicated to employment opportunities.
At the Livestock Event Careers in Agriculture will feature a series of 11 presentations entitled ‘a day in the life of’ to help guide visitors, and in particular students, on the wide range of jobs within the sector, from herd manager to agricultural bank manager, and agricultural engineer to nutritionist.
A further two sessions will focus on use of social media to get a job and the CV, the dos and don’ts. Two separate clinics will offer visitors one to one advice on how to brush up on their CV and how to put together a business plan.
“The livestock sector offers huge opportunities not only for the current, but the next generation,” comments Nick Everington, chief executive of the event organiser, the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.
“Careers in Agriculture is a new feature for the event which is designed to enable visitors to find out more about the skills and resources required, together with the dedication, enthusiasm and tenacity that is essential for success in the agricultural sector.”
