You don't have to get your hands dirty if you work at Lantra, but it helps if you enjoy the great outdoors. The not-for-profit organisation develops training and qualifications for land-based industries in the UK and Ireland. That includes agriculture, forestry, horticulture and the environmental sector.

Lantra's aim is to ensure that training and development is industry-led and meets industry's needs. It also provides advice on training and development, careers information and funding to support the delivery of training. Once known as a sector skills council, the mid-size organisation is based in Coventry. Staff there can work flexible hours, receive relevant training and are supported in their professional development.

Lantra works with training provider and instructor partners to deliver its courses, of which there are more than 350. Providers run specialist, accredited courses with the support of the organisation's network of skilled instructors and assessors. Instructors play a hand-on role delivering the skills, training and qualifications required.

Continuing its efforts to give back to the community, Lantra encouraged employees to take an extra days holiday to support a local charity or imitative through volunteering. The organisation's social committee also encouraged employees to donate the money they would usually spend on Christmas cards for colleagues and secret Santa to their local food bank or homeless shelter.
