Congratulations, Emily

We’re super proud of Clive Soanes Broilers’ Poultry Health Specialist, Emily Hughes who has been selected from over 40 applicants to join the NFU’s PIP (Poultry Industry Programme) cohort for 2022/2023.

The PIP was initially started by the NFU to develop young people already working within the poultry industry and broaden their knowledge. The programme builds on the cohort’s existing skills and knowledge to help them develop their careers as future industry leaders. The programme comprises a series of events and training which give participants a unique insight into the industry whilst providing networking opportunities.

A Harper Adams agri-food marketing and business graduate, Emily joined Clive Soanes Broilers in January 2021. She applied to join the PIP to get ‘more awareness of what’s going on in the wider industry and a bit more involvement with other young people in poultry on the PIP.’

NFU poultry adviser Tom Glen said: “It is important to engage and encourage the next generation and the NFU’s Poultry Industry Programme aims to inspire those already working within the sector to become future leaders.”

In November, the 2022/23 PIP cohort gathered at the NFU HQ at Stoneleigh Park for a training session on leadership. You can read Emily’s account of the day here:
