The “significant employee and skills shortages” in the UK agricultural and land-based industries has again been highlighted in a report by Lantra.

It is estimated that land-based and environmental industries currently employ approximately 1.3million people in 230,000 businesses across the UK.

However, more than half a million jobs will be created to replace an ageing workforce and to fill new vacancies in future.
