For years, we’ve partnered with WMTG because we believe in the impact of providing work placements and experiences for individuals like Conrad. It’s not just about giving back; it’s about investing in the future and supporting individuals to reach their full potential.


Over the past few weeks, Conrad has become an integral part of our team, immersing himself in various tasks and departments across our business. From the factory floor to our office site, Conrad has gained insights into our operations and culture, contributing his enthusiasm and perspective along the way.

Conrad has worked alongside our factory operatives, assisting with safety protocols, collaborating with our IT department, and even supporting at filming for our Shout About Farming marketing campaign. Each experience has provided Conrad with invaluable skills and knowledge that will serve him well in the future.

Conrad said:

“To anyone interested in what the world has to offer beyond what you are used to, I implore you to try something like this with Platts Agriculture if the opportunity ever comes your way. It has been an enjoyable 4 weeks and I wish this could go on for longer.”

As Conrad’s placement comes to an end, we gained so much form our partnership with WMTG. We are grateful for the opportunity to play a role in his professional development and wish him all the best in his future career.


We have gained so much from our partnership with WMTG, and it’s humbling to see the real difference the various programmes make for so many. It’s crucial that businesses provide opportunities for all and encourage young people to explore new ventures, perhaps even finding their niche in the working world.
