Pick for Britain encourages anyone looking for work during these unprecedented times to consider a job picking fruit and vegetables on a farm during the summer months.
There is a wide range of roles available, including pickers, packers, plant husbandry and tractor or forklift drivers to ensure the UK can deliver the best quality British fruit and veggies for everyone.
Pick For Britain provides details for jobseekers about growers, recruiters, and agencies that have job opportunities across the country.
