The NFU has helped established a route for UK poultry producers to secure seasonal workers by under the Government’s visa scheme.
Under the scheme, and in discussions which began in June, two visa providers have been dedicated to the country sector. They are ProForce Ltd (email@example.com ) and RE Recruitment Ltd (SeasonalWorkerVisa@rerecruitment.com). The NFU says anyone wanting to make use of the 2,000 visas for the poultry sector this year should make contact with them.
NFU Poultry Board chair James Mottershead said: “We have been working to help determine the much-needed scheme details to help members best utilise the visas and access the labour they so desperately require.”
