29th Nov 2021 / By Alistair Driver
Roadhogs Recruitment has teamed up with Oxfordshire-based pig producers, Allen Farming Group (AFFG), to create an on-the-job training scheme for entry-level pig stockpeople of all ages looking to enter the pig industry.
Over the course of a year, chosen candidates will work across all sections of the AFFG pig business, which covers most types of pig production. The aim is for entry-level pig stockperson to gain valuable pig experience to take forward into careers with future pig farms.
A skills matrix has been developed for each section across the units. AFFG will manage this in conjunction with Pig Pro, the training and development web-based tool designed by AHDB for the pig industry.
The on-the-job Training Scheme will run for a year across AFFG sites in indoor units in Dorset and outdoor units in West Sussex.
This scheme is a fully paid placement with accommodation provided, if required, managed by Roadhogs, with the opportunity of employment within the AFFG, once the course has successfully been completed.
Entry-level applicants of all ages will be considered.
