Preferred supplier of temporary workers sought

3 Jul 2012

NIAB is a pioneering plant science organisation based at the heart of the Cambridge science, technology and university communities and a thriving UK agricultural industry.

With over 90 years experience in the agricultural and food sectors, NIAB has an internationally recognised reputation for independence, innovation and integrity. Our traditional activities have always focused on science-led plant variety and seeds characterisation, evaluation, quality control and knowledge transfer

The delivery of successful field trials is one of the most crucial elements of NIAB’s operational activities. It is achieved by dedicated teams at our regional centres. To ensure that our high standards are maintained we require the support of an agency that can provide agricultural temporary workers.
