Do you have a passion for agriculture? Do you have what it takes to work with one of the leading organisations representing British farming and food production? Would you like the opportunity to really make a difference to NFU members? If you are a graduate and you have answered yes then the NFU’s graduate schemes will be the place for you.
The NFU is the UK’s largest trade association representing farmers and growers across England and Wales. It is regarded as one of the most effective lobbying organisations in Europe, negotiating with governments and pressure groups at a local, national, European and international level.
The NFU offers two graduate programmes; Agricultural Policy and Communications and Marketing. Both provide a range of placements that will challenge and develop your skill set, and you will learn by taking an active role, working alongside industry specialists.
