NSA ‘matchmakers’ for the perfect lambing team

The National Sheep Association has opened its annual Lambing List to match farmers with students looking for lambing jobs this spring.

Following several successful years, the NSA Lambing List connects sheep farming members who need assistance at lambing time with agricultural and veterinary students looking for a work experience placement as part of their studies.

NSA communications officer Hannah Park said: “The NSA Lambing List is hugely valued by both the sheep farmers and students who use it. Year on year the popularity of the service is growing and it always pleasing getting such a fantastic uptake.

“It’s a very simple but effective process – we collate a list of NSA members looking for help at lambing time and produce an advert so students can approach them directly to ask for a placement.”

NSA members wanting to advertise on the list provide details of their lambing system and the position they can offer, including any accommodation, meals and other details. Adverts are listed in the order they are submitted, so NSA members are encouraged to get adverts in as early as possible.

The service could not be simpler for students looking for a placement, with adverts split into regions to highlight positions available in different areas of the UK and overseas. The list can be found via the lambing and work experience pages at www.nsanextgeneration.org.uk.

Ms Park said: “This service is just one of the membership benefits NSA offers, while also supporting agriculture’s next generation to get ahead of the pack and get some solid work experience under their belts as part of their studies.

“Young people accessing the NSA Lambing List on the NSA Next Generation website will also find a host of online resources, packed with useful information on NSA’s work to support young people.”
