As thousands of people are laid off from the hospitality sector amidst the coronavirus COVID outbreak , UK farms have urgently appealed for seasonal workers to help them work the land. But the shortfall in staff means that there are still around 90, vacant jobs harvesting fruits and vegetables, driving tractors, processing and packaging. Unless there is a sudden influx of willing workers, farmers fear some produce may remain unharvested. The majority of roles begin in late April or early May, although some farmers require workers even sooner to pick asparagus and soft fruits when they come into season. Many also require help with lambing, which peaks mid-spring. Role lengths vary — some placements last for six weeks, while others last up to six months. Those working in food growing, production and delivery are considered key workers and are therefore able to continue travelling to work as usual. They are also entitled to educational support for their children. As well as sending volunteers all over the world, we also find motivated people from all over the world to work on UK farms.

A new shearing database to link up UK shearers with farmers and contractors has launched as the sheep sector looks to a difficult season. The Covid crisis is making it increasingly unlikely that the usual influx of highly-skilled overseas shearers will be able to travel to the UK. It is estimated overseas shearers usually shear about 20 percent of the UK flock, leaving a huge hole in resource this season. However, industry organisations are working together to try and ensure that shearing can go ahead using only British shearers.
To safeguard the health and welfare of the sheep flock, shearing is carried out at certain times of the year to minimise the risk of heat stress and fly strike. The National Association of Agricultural Contractor NAAC is hosting a matchmaking register online to bring together shearing contractors – who are potentially missing whole teams of overseas shearers – with UK shearers to try and get the season completed.
Shearers are now encouraged to come forward and register. The organisations are also encouraging farmers to get in touch with their usual contractor to organise their shearing. Jill Hewitt, NAAC Chief Executive, said shearing contractors have a ‘dual role’ in the Covid crisis to keep shearers and customers safe, whilst supporting and providing a vital operation for sheep farmers.
