Concordia is an international charity based in Brighton, UK. Their mission is to support people to develop skills and gain experiences so that they can thrive. Since their founding in 1943, Concordia has supported around three-quarters of a million people to undertake incredible volunteer and work placements all over the world.
Concordia supplies five core services: CYA (Concordia Youth Action), International Volunteering, NCS, Wellbeing Programme, and their Seasonal Workers Programme. Although their programmes vary, they are all motivated by three key values: Ethical, Partnership and Community.
Concordia has been trusted by the UK Government to successfully operate the Seasonal Worker Pilot Scheme for the past three years. Both the British Home Office and Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) confirmed that Concordia greatly exceeded required performance standards. Their ethos of excellent customer service, professionalism, reliable labour provision and training, ensures they are the number one choice for the UK agricultural industry.
Working on a UK farm through Concordia is a great opportunity to visit the UK, improve your English, make new friends, whilst earning money in a positive work environment. The majority of work placements run from March to November, with work contracts lasting 3 to 6 months. Work placements range from cultivation, cleaning, processing and packaging, so there’s sure to be something that fits your strengths. Concordia provides support at every stage of application and participation. They provide free insurance for the duration of participation, and only sends workers to farms that pass vigorous ethical audits.
