Find out first hand what it's like to Live, Learn & Earn in Ireland
Earlier this year, NZ Dairy Careers Director Matt Jones, met with Farm Relief Services (FRS) in Ireland to create opportunities for worker exchanges between Ireland and New Zealand which correspond with each country’s off-season. The main purpose of the exchange is to address the current agriculture labour shortage that each country has been experiencing, while giving successful candidates the opportunity to live, learn and earn in new surroundings.
FRS are a farmer-owned co-operative organisation, established in 1980, and are the single biggest supplier of farm labour in Ireland. Through growth and diversification FRS have expanded throughout Ireland with 20 offices nationwide. Padraig Madden and John Bronson from FRS are coming to New Zealand in partnership with NZ Dairy Careers to promote agricultural opportunities available to young people. Together, they will be hosting an event at the Hotel Ashburton, 7:00 pm on December 13th for agricultural workers who want to “Live, Learn & Earn” in Ireland.
NZ Dairy Careers are pleased to present FRS to the Mid Canterbury community and allow young agricultural workers and their parents to hear first-hand about the opportunities on offer via the exchange programme. The exchange programme is open to anyone who has agricultural experience and would like to work and travel to Ireland.
Applicants will require some farming background and will be interviewed and selected based on experience and having a good attitude to work.
Opportunities for New Zealanders will run throughout the year and assistance is provided to ensure a smooth transition, we work with applicants every step of the way. Upon arrival in Ireland, FRS will meet workers and provide support throughout their time in Ireland.
This is perfect for young people wanting an overseas experience. It’s not just about a job though, it’s also about having an experience in Ireland with three to twelve month placements. The exchange aims to deliver an overall experience that will further develop the skills of each individual for their future careers in agriculture and to enhance their general life skills.
