The ForFarmers ‘virtual’ scholarship fair will return on the 21st October 2021. Run by the Harper Adams Development Trust, the fair provides an opportunity for students at Harper Adams to explore the roles available for their industry placement year.

ForFarmers is proud to once again be partnering with the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) to offer a scholarship to a second year degree student, or a first year foundation degree student wanting to gain experience in the UK pig industry. Craig Saunders, Pig Sales Director comments: “We’re delighted to partner with Harper Adams through the AHDB pig industry scholarship scheme to continue to build a pipeline of talent For the Future of Farming. We’re committed to developing our team which includes our valued placement students.”

The pig industry is a dynamic and ambitious sector and during the placement year with ForFarmers students will have the opportunity to gain experience on farm and in the disciplines of sales, marketing, technical and business planning.

Previous placement student Emily Morgan returned in September 2021 to join the ForFarmers team as a Trainee Pig Account Manager. Since returning Emily has looked back on her placement to answer students’ frequently asked questions. Discover here
