THANK YOU FOR YOUR APPLICATION TO CONCORDIA'S FEED THE NATION CAMPAIGN.

The Process

Once you have completed an application form you will be sent a link to our online video interview platform. This may take 3-5 working days. If you have not received an invitation please check your spam folder.  

All applicants that pass the video interview will be sent our current roles as they become available.

Important Information

All our role are from late May onwards. If you require work before then we recommend you visit the Pick for Britain website and find a local farm that might suit you better. 

Offering roles

We offer roles to applicants based on preferences and availability wherever possible. We ask candidates for their preferences relating to location, ability to travel, preference for living arrangements, availability to start, period of availability and what additional skills and experiences they have. We use this information to offer roles that fit candidates criteria as best we can. If candidates have very narrow preferences it will be harder for them to find a suitable role – this is especially the case with candidates who are unable or unwilling to travel and/or commute to a farm, and those who are unable to live on a farm whilst working.

The Roles

Working on farms can be tough – it can be hard work, long hours, early starts, in sometimes difficult weather conditions. We want to be open and honest with you. You will be at least paid minimum wage and many farms pay National Living Wage or more, depending on how much fruit and/or vegetables you harvest, and the role you do on the farm. All roles offered through us come with training, which can last up to three weeks to give you the best chance of maximising your income whilst on a farm placement. You will be paid whilst you complete this training. As one of the sector’s leading ethical provider of seasonal labour, every job with us comes with free insurance for all our participants which includes travel, health and dental cover.

Health & Safety

At present roles will be starting on UK farms from late May onwards – harvesting crops on placements from 2 to 6 months, all over the UK. For health and safety reasons it’s vital that workers are able to commit to the full terms of a contract to limit the number of new arrivals on farms over a picking season. We require workers to self-isolate for two weeks prior to a contact beginning and the first few weeks of a contract will involve training, and health and safety procedures. Workers generally live and work in a team for the duration of their contact – this is to follow best practice in limiting the spread of infection. Therefore anyone who can not work as part of a small team, or for the full length of the placement, increases the risk of infection to all those on the farm, but especially to those they work closest with.

All farms, many of which are open fields, are following the correct procedures around safe working conditions during the Coronavirus outbreak. Ensuring our workers' safety is our top priority. You can be safe in the knowledge that every site has been inspected by us, to ensure that it abides by the highest ethical and legal standards. All of our partners are highly experienced and agricultural recruitment specialists, and hold a GLAA licence, meaning you are in safe hands.

Workers will be at least paid minimum wage and many farms pay National Living Wage or more, depending on how much fruit and/or vegetables they harvest, and the role they do on the farm. All roles offered through Concordia come with training, which can last up to three weeks to give them the best chance of maximising their income whilst on a farm placement. They will be paid whilst they complete this training.
