Showcasing outstanding contribution

Long Service Award

Long service awards are considered for agricultural workers who have remained in the same employment for a minimum of twenty years. Our awards will also include personnel who have worked within the wider industry such as Essex based agricultural companies, Writtle University College, Essex based contracting firms. Recognition should be considered for those employees, together with encouragement and support from their employer, have become highly skilled operators and trusted members of an increasingly technical team. Undoubtedly many of these personnel will be well known within the farming community. Nominations will only be considered from members of the EAS.

Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their investment of time within one company? Nominate them today with just a short biography and their contact details.
