UK farmers: tell us about the impact of Covid on seasonal workers

Posted at

Numbers of seasonal workers in the UK agricultural sector have reduced since the Brexit vote of 2016. This, coupled with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, is expected to have an impact on the number of seasonal workers in 2021.

We would like to hear from UK farmers, growers, and agricultural workers about how their industry has been affected. Are you facing problems with the recruitment of seasonal workers on your farm? Are you a seasonal worker who can’t work in the UK due to travel restrictions, or other concerns related to Covid? Are you living in the UK and hoping to get employment this summer?
