Farm Relief Services (FRS) have launched a national recruitment drive to source 200 seasonal farm workers to meet the demand from its farming customers around the country.

FRS are offering flexible hours, competitive rates, training and career progression to successful candidates.

FRS is a farmer-owned co-operative established in 1980 and provide the skills and services which farmers need to manage their farms efficiently, effectively and successfully.

Peter Byrne, CEO of FRS says it is aiming the recruitment campaign at three specific categories of candidates, experienced farmers with spare capacity, young people looking for farm experience and women looking for suitable part-time work.

“FRS are offering people, with a keen interest in farming, the opportunity to gain on-farm experience to build their career in agriculture and also encourage experienced farmers out there to apply as the roles can be flexible to allow them to supplement their current income and broaden their farming experience.

“FRS also have a number of female workers who are effectively structuring work around their family commitments and encourage more to apply,” he said
