Survey set to benchmark pay and benefits in farming

There are just a few days left to have your say on what it is like to work in agriculture – and put yourself in the running to win £1,000.

Farmers Weekly is carrying out a nationwide survey which aims to benchmark how wages across the sector compare and give an insight into people’s level of career satisfaction.

Hundreds of readers have already shared their thoughts and experiences, but we’d like to hear from more.

Complete the pay and careers survey

The survey is open to anyone working in a role on farm or in a company or organisation that trades with or advises farmers, in any capacity.

So we are keen to hear from farmworkers, herdsman, tractors drivers and spray operators.

We also want to hear from any advisers, consultants, nutritionists, agronomists, technicians, buyers, policy advisers and sales people who work in the agricultural sector.

Whatever your age – it is important that we hear from people in the middle and later stages of their careers, as well as younger readers – we want to know your thoughts.

The results will be published online and in a special careers supplement out on 5 June.

All information supplied will be treated anonymously, although all respondents will have their name entered into a prize draw with £1,000 on offer.

The survey, run in association with De Lacy Executive, will close on Sunday 26 April.
