The search is on for two young individuals to take up the ‘cyfle’ of a lifetime…

Would you like paid work experience visiting farms or attending farming events, or working within agricultural marketing, event management, business or financial administration?
Menter a Busnes (MaB), one of Wales’ leading economic development agencies, is offering two young people the chance to undertake a ‘hands on’ paid internship working within the agri-industry through its new work experience scheme, ‘Cyfle’.

Eirwen Williams, director of rural services for MaB, explained that the word ‘cyfle’ translates to chance or opportunity.

“This new scheme will provide two young school, college or university leavers with a range of relevant experiences that will give them the opportunity to find out which areas they find most interesting and provide a valuable stepping-stone to help get their future career prospects off to a great start.

“As a company, we are committed to supporting the agri-industry and rural communities in Wales.

“Whether you want experience of working for the business or financial side of MaB, within our marketing or administration divisions, or the opportunity to engage directly with farmers through visiting rural businesses, agricultural events, shows or livestock markets, ‘Cyfle’ offers a unique opportunity to shadow and learn from our experienced team members,” said Mrs Williams.

With between 200 and 500 hours of work on offer for both interns, paid at £12 per hour, this could be the perfect opportunity for any school or college/university student who must have completed full-time education by summer 2023.The work internship must take place between 1 June and 30 September in either 2023 or 2024.

“Applicants will ideally be able to travel to one or more of the Menter a Busnes offices which are in Bangor, Meifod, Aberystwyth, Carmarthen and Cardiff, but there could also be opportunities to shadow and work alongside regional staff in other parts of Wales.

“Provided you have not already arranged to take up paid employment, ‘Cyfle’ could provide a great opportunity for you to gain relevant paid experience, while adding that all-important notch to your CV,” said Mrs Williams.

The two successful applicants will each be given a designated MaB mentor and will be offered specific continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities. They will also be invited to attend and participate at MaB meetings and receive advice on career development and interview techniques.
