Our MD Sam Clayton was asked to speak at Agri-TechE's Agri 101 event, around the different career routes that exist in AgriTech - in particular answering the question of whether or not an Agri / Farming background is always required.
This event has been running for a few years now, so hopefully we'll see it again in 2023 - definitely recommended for anybody in, or interested in getting into, the AgTech world!
Do contact us for further info on the content of Sam's talk should you want to know more.
We were delighted to be asked to sponsor Barn4's in person social event for the second occasion, at their Cambridge NIAB site.
Previously held virtually during the lockdown period, this is now the second time this has been held in person, and we look forward to more to come!
A great opportunity to meet with innovators in the AgriTech domain, and definitely recommended for those in the space (or with an interest in getting into it).
Working as a Recruiter in AgriTech, naturally people often ask me what type of roles I find myself recruiting for. We also collaborate and provide advice to various academic bodies and institutions in this space and, in a similar vein, are also asked; what kind of career opportunities exist in this world? Is it a career route people should be actively looking to pursue? Do you need a farming background to build a career in this domain?
The truth is that, just like in other tech driven sectors, the nature of roles that arise can be highly varied, weird & wonderful. Some of course may require an agri / farming specific skillset, but there’s a plethora of others that don’t. Below is a (by no means exhaustive!) snapshot:
In summary, for anybody interested in this space and the opportunity to work in a sector that can have a genuinely positive impact on the world, there are career opportunities aplenty… whether you’re of an Agri background or not. Don’t let a lack of an Agri background deter you!
It was a pleasure and privilege to sponsor Barn4's recent Breakfast Social event; the first one to be held in person.
The event provided a great chance to meet and network with various parties across the AgriTech sector, from start-up leaders through to those interested in investing into the sector.
Fingers crossed for more events of this nature in future.
Vertical Farming is a sub-sector of AgriTech in which we've seen a huge rise in activity levels in the last 1-2 years. However, it was only recently that we had the chance to physically see a Vertical Farm in action, as we travelled to visit a client in this domain.
Feeling like we'd just stepped into the future, we came away highly impressed and excited about what this space has to offer. We expect to see much more activity and a range of different role types opening up in this sector over the coming months and years... watch this space!
We recently enjoyed exhibiting at FPC's (Fresh Produce Consortium) Futures event - our first in-person event since before the pandemic.
It was great to put a face to the name of so many people we've developed connections and relationships with over the last 1-2 years, but have not been able to meet in person until now!
Overall, the event seemed to be a great success, and we look forward to hopefully visiting again next year!
We are excited to be getting back out there to face to face events and exhibitions in the near future, currently we plan to exhibit at:
FPC Future, November 2021 - https://freshproduce.org.uk/events/fpc-future-2021
Low Carbon Agriculture, March 2022 - https://lowcarbonagricultureshow.co.uk/
Looking forward to seeing you there!
