IT’S a great time to train for a career in agriculture.
A study by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research lists managerial jobs, including farm managers, as the sector that will have the second highest number of job openings by 2024 – 10,100 per year or almost 81,000 total.
As farming gets more mechanised, so will the associated jobs. People with IT expertise, business savvy and specialised skills will be more and more in demand.
The good news is innovation and technology look set to create more jobs on our farms, not less.
