Lantra is a charity committed to improving skills and opportunities for the land-based sector. We work to ensure more careers seekers, changers and influencers have a better understanding of the rewarding career opportunities that exist in the land-based and environmental industries, and drive skills development to help people work safely, productively and sustainably.

Find your field…farm…or forest!

The land-based sector is diverse, dynamic and rewarding and offers a wide variety of career opportunities. Whether you are practical, hardworking and like the outdoors, want to work with horses, livestock and companion animals, have an interest in coming up with innovative solutions and working with the latest technology, or helping to manage landscapes sustainably, a career in land-based could be for you! 

We have over 250 career descriptions on our website, along with information about salary, skills, related qualifications and opportunities for training. You can also hear from people already working in the sector who will help to give you an idea of what a day in the life of a variety of careers might look like.

Where do I start?

There are many different routes into the wide range of rewarding career paths. Once you leave school, you could choose a full or part-time course at college or university, you could volunteer for a land or nature-based charity or trust, or you could find a job and gain qualifications, training or an apprenticeship in the workplace, earning while you learn.

Not sure where to start? Why not take a look at our Industries Explorer as an introduction to the different areas you could work in.
