During the COVID-19 pandemic it is vital that we ensure key rural and land-based businesses in Scotland — including farms and businesses with animal welfare obligations — are able to access key workers and can continue operating.
To meet this need, Lantra are creating a skills matching service which will put businesses and potential employees with relevant skills and experience in touch with each other.
Lantra will filter applicants by matching up their key skills with those required by the businesses, which will make it easier for both employers and employees to find each other.
Nearly all vacancies are in Scotland, so if you want to join the Skills Matching Service you must be available to work here. See the FAQs for jobs in the rest of the UK .
To join the skills matching service please click on one of the following links:

- If you are looking to recruit a large number of key seasonal or unskilled workers, then contact NFUS or register with Our Skillsforce Job Hub for employers.
