Kickstart your arable writing career at Farmers Weekly

If you know your T1 from your triticale, enjoy meeting arable growers and have an aptitude for writing, then Farmers Weekly has just the job for you.

We are looking for someone with good arable technical knowledge and an understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the UK arable sector to join our team of four on the Arable desk as a reporter.

Journalism might not be the first career that springs to mind if you want to work in farming – but take it from us, it is one of the most varied and rewarding jobs in the sector.

The role involves writing for both Farmers Weekly’s magazine and website, which means your typical week might involve interviewing a farmer, scientist or agronomist, shooting a video on farm, tweeting live from the field during harvest or editing the latest in our Crop Watch series.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a formal journalism qualification, or have never picked up a video camera before – if you have good writing and communication skills and are willing to learn, we’ll teach you.

It is a fast-paced job, where no two weeks are the same – so why not consider a new career?

The role is based in our Surrey offices, but it’s more than a desk job, and you will be out and about on farm in the UK and abroad on a regular basis.

To apply for the role, send your CV and a covering letter about your favourite job on the farm to Richard Allison, Arable editor, Farmers Weekly, Quadrant House, The Quadrant, Sutton, Surrey SM2 5AS or email
