THE Livestock and Meat Commission (LMC) has launched its 2024-25 student placement opportunity.
The role provides an undergraduate student with an opportunity to gain hands on experience within the agri-food sector, working within the Commission’s education, marketing and communications department.
Commenting LMC education and consumer promotions manager, Sarah Toland said, “This is an exciting role in which a student can make meaningful contributions to the marketing, communications and education programme activities which LMC deliver.”
Applications are welcome from undergraduate students who are required to complete a sandwich placement part way through their studies. The role would be suitable for students studying marketing, food science or agri-business related courses.
Sarah continued, “The LMC placement programme has been running for almost 10 years with great success recorded to date. While LMC provide mentorship, personal and professional opportunities for development for students, we too benefit from their varied skill sets and fresh perspectives.
“The post is now live on our website and we welcome applications from interested students. It is envisaged that this paid placement will commence in June 2024 and run for 12 months until June 2025.”
