The recruitment campaign was launched at the National Ploughing Championships at Ratheniska, Co. Laois this week with interested farm workers being encouraged to sign up at the FRS stand.
The company currently maintains a panel of over 1,200 farm operatives who support more than 5,000 farms across the country. Over the course of the next 12 months, the company is projecting significant growth in demand for farm support.
FRS will be placing a special focus on hiring more milkers as well as general farm workers, with the greatest anticipated demand associated with those two functions.
Speaking about the recruitment drive, Colin Donnery, Group CEO of FRS Network said: “As we look ahead to 2023 we are expecting a further surge in demand, with many of the farmers we are working with indicating they want to increase their use of our services, while our regional offices are also experiencing a significant level of interest from further farms who are keen to benefit from FRS Farm Relief’s assistance.
“That is why we are now looking to hire another 300 plus farm workers. We will have opportunities for farm work all over the country so we would encourage anyone who is interested in this type of work to come talk to us on at our stand or visit our careers’ page on www.frsfarmrelief.ie/careers”.
