On 29 April Defra’s labour team and representatives from the Home Office will be hosting a webinar to discuss options for recruiting seasonal poultry workers ahead of the 2021 Christmas season.

The NFU has continued to engage with the Defra team regarding access to labour for seasonal poultry businesses since the exemption for poultry workers was granted in November 2020. They have agreed to address concerns, talk through how the EU Settlement Scheme works and share insight into opportunities for the recruitment of UK workers.

The webinar will take place from 2pm-3pm on 29 April. If you would like to register for this webinar, please email TkZVUG91bHRyeUBuZnUub3JnLnVr with your name and NFU membership number.

This webinar has been rescheduled from its original date of 14 April due to the period of national mourning that commenced following the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh. Out of respect, all non-essential communications activity from public sector organisations were suspended during the mourning period.
