Fyffes labels Agri Careers Fair a 'resounding success'

Fyffes Head of Human Resources, William Faulkner, has labelled the fruit importer’s high-profile presence at the recent Agri Careers Fair in the RDS a ‘resounding success’.

Since the event, the company has received over 1,000 applications from students seeking a place on their 2017 Graduate Management Programme, which begins in September and for which a limited number of places are available.

Geared towards those pursuing a career in agriculture, horticulture, agribusiness, agri-technology, engineering or forestry, the Programme offers selected students a two-years work placement, that includes travel and hands-on experience working on a Fyffes banana, melon or pineapple farm in Central America.
