We’re on the hunt to employ talented new Pig Industry staff for our Pig Specialist team.
We’re offering full-time work on assignments on different units all over the UK.
This is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience across different departments.
So, if you’re fed up with the daily grind and want variety and an opportunity to challenge yourself, join Roadhogs’ Relief Team!
How It Works
One week you could be working with a three-week batch system on an outdoor breeding unit, the next month on a 200-sow family-run indoor farm, joining the team on a 2000-sow indoor unit and then on an all-in/all-out finishing setup, to name but a few!
What You Need to Bring
Ideally, you will have 2 years + of experience in the pig industry. But don’t worry if you feel you don’t quite have enough because if you are of the right mindset, ready to embrace a challenge, and not frightened to ask questions, we can help.
You’ll need a driving licence & a car. In addition, you’ll need to be reliable, have good communication skills and can turn up to a unit and hit the ground running.
What Roadhogs Can Offer You

- Daily subsistence if you have to self-cater
- Travel expenses and if you are not local

Here’s what our Pig Specialists have to say about working for Roadhogs.
“I joined the Roadhogs Pig Specialist team for the flexibility and ability to use my van to travel around the UK and experience a wealth of different pig farming practices.
Three years on, and I have not looked back.
A very caring, efficient employer, and I have to say that Liz and the team do a fantastic job, leaving me proud to be a part of Roadhogs.”
“You get to travel around the country, see different setups, and meet lots of people, which adds to your experience as a farmer.
As a Pig Specialist, our expenses (travel, sustenance) are paid for, so I can save quite a lot. Roadhogs always have had a job for me.”
“I joined the Roadhogs team as the idea of moving from farm to farm appealed to me. My family and I live in France, and the flexibility of this work allows me to go back whenever I want. I like to see how different units operate and I am always learning something new and meeting different characters, which keeps up my level of interest. Quite frankly, the idea of having a permanent job on the same farm for years and years is scary. I think I would get so bored of the same old, same old. I get to see parts of the UK that I otherwise not see.”
