We're supporting Farmers Weekly to help UK farms recruit 80,000 harvesters.

UK farms are facing their biggest challenge since foot and mouth. They need 80,000 people to complete their harvests. With coronavirus driving food demand higher, failure just isn’t an option. It's why we're supporting Farmers Weekly with their recruitment drive campaign 'The Farmers Army' to help UK farmers get the job done.

We’ve helped Farmers Weekly to establish and promote a recruitment website, where people can search for harvesting roles as well as a host of other farming roles including equestrian, livestock, machinery and sales and marketing.

Farmers can advertise jobs for free on The Farmers Army website by calling 020 8652 8638 or emailing and you can explore the Farmer's Army website.

Dirk Heilmann, Chief Executive Officer of INEOS Grenadier, said: “We are extremely proud to be sponsoring and supporting The Farmers Army initiative, led by Farmers Weekly. During a period of crisis for farmers, it’s important that we as a nation do all we can to support them.”

The INEOS Grenadier is a no frills, no fuss 4x4, with one simple mission – to get the job done. No matter what the conditions. That’s why, we’re proud to be doing our bit to help them our UK farmers the job done and feed the nation.

“With the help of INEOS Grenadier, we’ve launched the Farmers Army initiative to tackle the harvest labour shortage. It falls to all of us to work together to do everything we can to keep our farms — and our nation — going.”
