Virtual Rural Week

Monday 17th August 2020 - Wednesday 19th August 2020




Virtual Rural Week

Discover current opportunities for Service leavers and veterans in the land-based sector.

Due to Covid-19 HighGround’s Spring Rural Weeks at Bicton College have been postponed, with hopes to restart at Bicton on 13th September for a full autumn programme.

In the meantime, Virtual Rural Weeks are on-hand to help you plan and navigate through these uncertain times.

Across three days, serving and former officers will gain insight into current and post COVID opportunities from industry experts. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from HighGround's new Rural Employment Manager, as well as increasing your network of contacts and getting your questions answered.

9:30 - Group introduction and land-based opportunities for the ex-military community in the UK
11:30 - Landscaping and heritage gardening
9:30 - Arboriculture and forestry
11:30 - Opportunities on an estate including self-employment and contracting
9:30 - Environmental conservation and park ranger
11:30 - Post Covid-19 opportunities, introduction to Rural Employment Manager and follow-up

In the absence of the opportunity to meet face-to-face at lunch (and at the student bar), HighGround ask that you send a short pen pic about yourself to be shared with course attendees and presenters.

To register please contact Anna: anna@highground-uk.org | 07951 495272
