Work Experience Opportunities in Agricultural Industries


The following work experience opportunities are available to anyone aged 16 or over who is interested in working in the agricultural sector. We have a range of opportunities available. Depending on the employer, some are for one or two weeks. Once you have chosen your preferred work experience, we will put you in touch with the relevant employer and they will give you more details on the type and duration of your work experience with them.

At present, these opportunities are only in the Lothians, but our aim is to start to list work experience opportunities throughout Scotland in the longer term, so if you are not from the Lothians, please check the site in the months to come for further opportunities.

Neither Jobfarm nor RHASS accept any liability to anyone who uses the website to source work experience opportunities and they provide no warranty that the work experience opportunity is either suitable or appropriate for the applicant. The information provided on the website is for guidance only and is not necessarily comprehensive. Applicants for work experience should make their own enquiries from the farmer or business to ensure that the work experience they take up is suitable for them.
