Careers in Focus

Our Careers in Focus event is no longer running, however, if you are a school looking to promote food and farming to your students, please get in touch and we will do our best to help.

Likewise, if you are an employer, looking to make links with local schools, we’d love to hear from you.


Organisations from across the industry, including food manufacturers, machinery engineers and scientific researchers have come together to develop Bright Crop.
