agricultureAccording to The Guardian,  agriculture is the fastest growing study subject in the United Kingdom. Universities have seen a 4.6% increase in student numbers last year, according to the environment minister Elizabeth Truss.  Today, more than 19,000 students have chosen agriculture.

For whom is the study agriculture?

What you need to know is that agriculture isn’t just only for future farmers in the UK. This degree is actually quite diverse.

Instead of becoming a farmer, students could for instance be employed by food suppliers and retailers.

But the study of agriculture can also open positions in fields such as research and technology, consultancy, education, marketing or the media.

While the number of students in agriculture has risen there is still a shortage in the sector.

Some industry experts believe that to maintain its existing workforce, the agriculture sector in the UK needs to recruit 60,000 new students in the next ten years.

Farming today is quite different than it was some decades ago. Today there are issues such as  climate change, market volatility and reliance on subsidies that lay a major role when taking up this profession. In addition to that, the average age of British farmers is 59, this signifies yet another problem in this sector.

Car manufacturers in Great Britain had been doing quite well during the previous 10 years. Now, there are concerns whether a vote to leave thei European Union could reverse this. Would a Brexit be bad for Great Britain’s car industry or are those fears unfounded?

Their car industry is one of the most important and flourishing industries in the UK. It is therefore reasonable to be concerned with a Brexit can pose a threat in terms of foreign investment by car manufacturer’s that is a big part in reviving the U.K.’s automotive industry in recent years.

One example here would be Toyota. Last week, the carmaker issued a response in regards to the upcoming Brexit referendum. A spokesperson said “Back in 1992, Toyota chose the UK for its first major manufacturing operations in Europe because of the open and free access to the European market, the availability of a skilled workforce and the presence of a strong network of suppliers.”

Toyota added that “we are concerned that leaving [the EU] would create additional business challenges. As a result we believe continued British membership of the EU is best for our operations and their long-term competitiveness.”

Toyota alone is employing 3400 and there are British plants in Burnaston and Deeside.

Another carmaker, Honda, is employing 2000 people in Swindon and has rest the £2.25 billion in the plant here in the UK. BMW is also manufacturing and exporting cars from the UK. BMW also stated that they would rather wish that Britain would remain an active and influential member of the EU.

According to some experts, exiting the European Union would be a very bad idea!

Many companies are now jumping on the electronic invoicing bandwagon. There is a good reason for that. E-Invoicing is easy, affordable and provides businesses with numerous benefits.

electronic_invoiceWhile the advantages of electronic invoicing may be most evident in businesses that have a large volume of invoices, e-invoice is usually beneficial for small business. In fact, small businesses with few employed can probably profit most from switching to e-invoicing.

Electronic invoicing can save you considerable time and in many cases even the need for staff that you would otherwise require for your invoice process.

Even a low amount of invoices every day,  say three or four invoices daily, will quickly add up to several hours of work every week.

Electronic invoicing can considerably help you shorten the time required to process them.

Aside from the fact that you won’t have to transfer paper data to your computer system any longer, electronic invoicing is also a lot easier and faster to organise. From the time of the creation of your invoices, the e-invoices are readily accessible from one single, central computer system. This makes them easier to manage. Other benefits of electronic invoices are that they are less prone to mistakes which in turn can also help you save money.

No matter what type of business you have, there is a chance that electronic invoicing can help you tremendously. It is affordable and very easy to use. This is why I can recommend that you should look into E-invoicing if you look for ways how to optimise your business.

For people who love cars, a career where they can be close-up and personal with their passion can be the best option.

There are actually a number of interesting and promising career paths in this field. Those can range from general motorsport to car design or engineering and mechanics.

As with many occupations today, getting into a desired career field or a particular company isn’t always easy.

IT apprenticeships in the UKA motorsport career in the United Kingdom is one of those careers where I highly recommend that you look into apprenticeships. Why apprenticeships?

For those who are looking for a position in competitive fields such as motorsport or IT, an apprenticeship can often be the key to get on with a great career.

Companies today are more willing to take on apprentices as compared to full-time employees. But this is not the main advantage of an apprenticeship.

What’s important to know is that a majority of companies today will hire their apprentices at the end. Some say that apprentices in the United Kingdom are the closest to a guarantee for employment, even in very competitive fields.

An apprenticeship is the best way to get skills and qualifications “on the job”. It is the best way to get hands-on experience as opposed to theoretical knowledge. And it is this hands-on experience that employers today value most. As for myself, I have seen some employers rejecting jobseekers simply because they did not have the hands-on experience, despite great grades in school.

In my opinion you should not waste too much time time after school looking for full-time employment but rather try to get on as an apprentice and then reap all the benefits that come with it. Rest assured that almost any employer today will be impressed if you can show an apprenticeship on your CV. And as mentioned above, most of the time you won’t even have to since your chances to get hired will be very high!

Today it is not difficult to find available apprenticeship vacancies such such as IT apprenticeships or motorsport apprenticeship vacancies. There exist several dedicated websites today where you can find them and where you can apply.
