Commercial rotation   Sustainable crop production rotation   IntraCrop rotation (home-based)

As an integral part of the team, this rotation is a great opportunity to gain a full understanding of the business across a period of 12 months.

Split across four business areas, the placement will give the successful student the chance to develop their commercial knowledge while working in the farm trading, forwarding and operations teams, as well as joining Kings, a leading specialist crops provider and division of Frontier.  

Following this rotation, some of our previous placement students have gone on to take roles in our commercial, agronomy and trading teams after completing their degree.

    

This placement, titled ‘sustainability’, has an overarching link to the commercial teams, such as Agronomy and Trading. The placement will involve opportunities throughout the year to learn more about these relationships and to experience different areas of Frontier and how they depend on and interact with each other for the customer.  

Split across three business areas, the placement will give the successful student the chance to build their technical knowledge within the sustainable crop production team, work alongside sales area managers in a commercial role and develop a sound understanding of farm legislation within the MyCompliance team.  

This is a new placement, which reflects Frontier’s commitment to sustainability.

      

IntraCrop manufactures a range of speciality inputs including plant biostimulants, adjuvants and seed treatments and is a virtual business, connected via a number of online platforms.This placement will give the successful student the chance to experience the IntraCrop business within commercial, marketing, and administrative functions. During the placement, the student will assist in our extensive trials programme, conduct market research and analyse and interpret data to prepare technical content.There is the potential for an overseas visit whilst working with IntraCrop, therefore you must hold a valid and current passport.

 


Kathryn's story

Kathryn, one of our recent work placement students, described her time with Frontier as "a great opportunity to explore multiple sections of the business in just one year - an experience that not many other companies offer." During her time at Frontier, she had the opportunity to work with different teams throughout the business which greatly increased her confidence.
