LMC highlights agriculture career opportunities at college fair

The Livestock and Meat Commission (LMC) attended a food careers fair at the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) Loughry campus.

Representatives from LMC attended the fair to highlight career opportunities within the agriculture industry, distributing a range of educational and promotional resources, including the Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured beef and lamb recipe books.

Sarah Toland, LMC education and consumer promotions manager, said: “Third level students are at a critical juncture in their educational journey, with many seeking placements or graduate jobs. Attending careers events provides LMC with a platform to showcase our diverse portfolio of work and illustrate first hand some of the career opportunities available within the agri-food industry.

“A key area of interest for students at the Loughry event was the Commission’s marketing and education placement which is offered to undergraduate students who are required to complete a sandwich placement part-way through their studies.

“Students also spoke to the LMC team about other popular areas of work for food graduates within the agri-food industry, with many actively interested in quality assurance and sustainability.”

Toland concluded: “LMC has a longstanding relationship with the education sector in Northern Ireland and we want to continue to support educators and students from primary school through to third level education moving forward. On behalf of LMC I wish to extend our thanks to CAFRE Loughry for the kind invitation to attend this worthwhile event.”
