Only 19% of thousands signing up for Feed the Nation jobs are committing to interview
Only 19% of the thousands of people signing up for Feed the Nation jobs are committing to an interview.

They suggest this is to do with a reluctance for UK workers to relocate from their homes for a four to six month seasonal job.
