By 23rd October 2015Archive

CropTec, the leading specialist arable event will host, in conjunction with the East of England Agricultural Society, an interactive workshop designed to offer students a diverse insight into career opportunities within the arable industry.

Sponsored by EDGE, an industry led project that aims to EDUCATE, DEVELOP, GROW and EMPLOY those taking their first steps into careers in the food and farming industries, the event will address some of the challenges students face. Those include the many, multi-faceted career paths now open to them: the different skills required and how to approach specific companies and organisations for career advice and employment opportunities.

From practical farm management to research, technology, agronomy and consultancy, students will hear professionals from a range of disciplines and recent graduates who will explain a typical working day, roles, responsibilities, challenges and benefits.

Stephen Howe, CropTec’s Development Director, says: “This is a brilliant opportunity for students to explore the diverse employment opportunities which exist in the dynamic, fast moving and increasingly global arable sector.  The CropTec Careers Forum will highlight the numerous courses, skills and experience required to enable students to achieve a successful career in one of the UK’s most exciting industries.”

Held on Wednesday, November 25, the careers forum, which is free to attend and will create awareness about the different career opportunities in the arable sector available to students.

CropTec provides the perfect platform for students to network and gain free face-to-face advice from organisations, exhibitors and industry specialists in understanding potential career options available in the arable industry.

CropTec, which opens for business on Tuesday, November 24, is the essential technical, knowledge exchange event for arable and mixed farmers, agronomists and advisers, sprayer and spreader operators and contractors.
