The British manufacturer of pig and poultry feed is recruiting for two talented students to complete two 12 month paid industry scholarship placement, in partnership with Harper Adams University. One of the placements will be based in the poultry industry, and the other focussing on the pig industry.
Applications are now live on the Harper Adams placement portal and will close on Friday 16 November, with the scheme to start in July 2019.
Combining on-farm and industry experience, the placements will see time split evenly between different areas, taking participants through every aspect of the industry.
The successful candidates will firstly gain hands-on experience, learning the practical day-to-day operations of a working farm, before moving into the ABN business for the remaining months. They will also have the opportunity to work with other companies that operate under AB Agri, ABN’s parent company, enabling them to broaden their understanding of the industry as a whole.
Shona Crawford-Smith, Commercial Analyst at ABN, originally joined the company on their graduate scheme. Commenting on training schemes, she said: “I think the new scholarship programme is a fantastic gateway into the industry for young, talented students. As well as learning valuable things about the business and wider industry, schemes like these are a great opportunity to meet like-minded young people.”
During the 12-month placement, students will also benefit from the following:
- Competitive salary of £16,500
- 25 days of annual leave
- Line management and mentoring
