Seasonal Agricultural Workers' Scheme Pilot Extension Request

Escaping Brexit for a moment we are strongly encouraging the Government to extend the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme SAWS pilot.

Worth reading P&J story where Matthew Jarret employment agency exec said “sector would be struggling regardless of Brexit” and Stephanie Maurel said there was a “perception problem” with migrant labour unwilling to pick strawberries.

SAWS is open to non-EU and EU citizens can continue to work in the UK.   EU citizens here for 5 years at the end of the transition are welcome to stay permanently and can now apply at no cost.
