The National Federation of Young Farmers (NFYFC) has launched its own recruitment agency for the agri-business sector through its commercial arm, HOPS Labour Solutions Limited.
The service draws together potential applicants and farms requiring skilled staff together by means of a personal recruitment service rather than purely advertising either online or through the press.
HOPS Operations Director, Glyn Smith (pictured right), said: “We are the unique position of having direct contact with a large number of young people through the young farmers network as well as a large database of skilled Eastern Europeans which many farmers like.
“Many employers don’t have the time nor or sometimes the skills to recruit properly which sometimes leads to employing inappropriate staff which can prove to be a very expensive exercise. To our knowledge there is nobody else in the marketplace offering this level of service in recruitment."
