Multi-lingual Seasonal Worker video launched

Back to Blogs
Pro-Force has created a new video informing seasonal workers about their employment rights and what to expect on UK farms, which is now subtitled into another 10 languages.

The video has been gifted to the GLAA so it can be used by the entire industry.

An English version of the film was released earlier this month, with subtitles now available in Bulgarian, Indonesian, Kazakh, Nepalese, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Tajik, Ukrainian, and Uzbek.

Seasonal workers describe their experiences of the scheme, how they were recruited, what a normal working day involves, how they are paid, their accommodation, and what they do in their spare time.


The video was created by Pro-Force and has received ongoing support from the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and the Work Rights Centre, an independent charity specialising in providing advice to migrant workers about their employment rights. 

You can watch all 11 versions of the video below.

·       English 

·       Bulgarian

·       Indonesian

·       Kazakh

·       Nepalese

·       Polish

·       Romanian

·       Russian

·       Tajik

·       Ukrainian

·       Uzbek


GLAA Head of Prevention and Partnerships Frank Hanson said: “From the outset, it was always really important for us that the finished product was available in a range of relevant languages. Workers will now be able to watch the video with subtitles in either their own language or one which they should be able to easily understand.

“We all want seasonal workers to have a positive experience of working in UK agriculture and this video combined with other interventions will support them from the start of their employment journey right through to when they return home.

“I hope the video will prove to be an invaluable resource for workers for not just the remainder of the season, but in future years as well.”
