Agriculture Jobs: Farming jobs in the UK could be hit by Brexit

Farming jobs are set to be hit with a reduction in UK farming jobs, with a new report revealing that the sector has lost more than 2,000 jobs over the past decade.

The report, by the Centre for Agricultural Research, said the number of UK farming workers in the service sector dropped by 6,000 to just under 4,000 over the same period.

In the year to June 2019, there were 8,800 people in the sector.

“Farmers are facing a tough time in the coming years.

There is a clear need for new skills in the industry and this is reflected in the number and composition of roles being filled in the private sector,” said Chris McManus, chief executive of the centre.

“However, the Government needs to make a more informed and effective decision on the future of the sector and how it will be managed in the post-Brexit era.”

The report said there were a number of challenges facing the industry, including a shortage of qualified and motivated staff, with some of those shortages becoming acute in the next few years.

“The sector is facing challenges such as the increasing competition in the agriculture supply chain, the impact of climate change, and the effects of Brexit,” it said.

“Many of these issues will also have an impact on the number, type, and type of contracts that will be offered to employees in the future. “

“For the first time in modern history, UK farmers are facing the prospect of losing their jobs and, as a result, the economy as a whole could be in trouble.” “

There were 2,078,000 farming jobs in England and Wales as of June 2020, with around a third of them in the agricultural service sector, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). “
