Today, the holding has more than 130 open vacancies in various segments of agricultural production: cattle farming, crop growing and machine maintenance.

The attendees demonstrated a keen interest in the company: in the first hour of the fair, Ekoniva welcomed over 100 people at its booth and after the event, the company received 45 applications for training and internship.

‘Our main goal is to tell the students and graduates about EkoNiva’s business and its benefits as an employer’, underlines Viktoriya Polyanskaya, Deputy Regional HR Director at EkoNiva Kursk branch.

‘Our company, in its turn, gets an opportunity to create a talent pool for further training, internships and employment’, adds Yevgeniy Bezpalov, Senior Talent Pool Specialist of EkoNiva.

The holding cooperates with 58 Russian agricultural institutions. Each of them holds student job fairs annually and EkoNiva’s vacancies never fail to be the most popular.

As for this year’s graduates, EkoNiva offers paid traineeship programmes in Veterinary Medicine, Herd Management and Agronomy. The students take a series of crash courses in cattle farming, crop growing and machine maintenance taught by corporate coaches. Based on the results of the traineeship, the company evaluates the skill level of the young specialists. If a trainee is offered a job upon completing the programme, he or she is eligible for a salary starting from 50,000 rubles.

In 2021, 17 students of Kursk State Agricultural Academy completed a traineeship at EkoNiva facilities. This year’s trend remains consistent, since 12 students are currently taking part in the programme and 5 trainees will join them soon.
