To late 50 Rumanian PHD's got in first :lol:

 

very cheap, we are only paying them 2 groats an hour, and they will sleep 25 to a caravan, and when they are not looking at plants they will sell clothes pegs and read your fortune. 

 

So much for racial stereotyping  :blink:

Ok, for the first one you need a “first degree in a relevant biological subject, plus a higher degree or alternative relevant qualification in plant pathology or microbiology” plus specific experience.

 

That second one’s in the US with no visa sponsorship.

 

The third one is too, and you need a Ph.D

 

I don’t think an NVQ 2 in Horticulture is quite going to cut it.

Oooh..., go on then obs.

 

Post a link to an advertised vacancy for a "plant pathologist".

 

<starts stopwatch>

Whoa!!! ElTee, you didn't specify any qualifications, as per the quote above stating -  "Post a link to an advertised vacancy for a "plant pathologist"" are they links to vacancies or are they not?. :D:wink:

Suggest you contact the RHS, their Chairman was making the appeal on Countryfile. As for qualification Fughts, of course, that's what kids are supposed to come out of the Education system with - relevant qualifications; not sure a PHD in Dance or Media Studies quite does it though!

Heh, Nick.

 

..are they links to vacancies or are they not?

 

Er, yes, algy, well done!

 

 

What you've helpfully demonstrated for us though is that:

 

A) although there may well be a shortage of plant pathologists, this doesn't always translate into vacancies (similar to the current situation with midwives)

 

and

 

Bb) it would take an unemployed youngster at least six years (assuming they have the right GCSEs) to be in a position to be able to apply for one of these jobs, by which time there may not be such a shortage.

 

Things aren't always as easy and straightforward as they might first appear, is all.
