About the Programme

Concordia has worked with growers since 1943, giving us unrivaled knowledge of seasonal horticulture work placements. Our extensive experience and expertise allow us to empathise with the challenges you face, and consequently, offer the support you need to ensure everything runs effectively.

Every worker (including returnees) benefits from the Concordia membership package and wrap-around support. It is of the highest importance to us that we are at the forefront of ethics and worker welfare. Concordia workers pay no fees to Concordia or its agents during the recruitment process.

We work closely with our overseas agents to ensure that all seasonal work candidates are interviewed and thoroughly screened, fully briefed on the job description, and motivated to work. This ensures that workers arrive with accurate
expectations and are well suited to the work that they will be performing.

We only use agricultural recruitment specialists, all of whom have a GLAA licence. We also run our annual Agents’ Conference in Autumn. During the conference, we review how the season has gone, look at any potential issues that have arisen over the year, and share best practice across our network.
