General public event

Nicolas Fanjaud, co-president of the 40 Young Farmers (JA) of South Aveyron, recalls that the fair took on an agricultural bent in the 1990s: "before, it was more oriented General public. From 2010, the JAs helped organize the meal. And in 2017 we took charge of the entire fair by focusing specifically on agriculture with the livestock and equipment side. Because the fair was doomed to disappear. Today, it has taken a good turn and continues to grow. This year, we are joining forces with the craft fair. It’s a challenge for both events to be a success."

Regarding the agricultural fair, "it’is an event intended for the general public to communicate positively about agriculture, specifies Aurélien Viala, administrator of the JA. It is also a professional meeting focused on employment, installation and transfer of operations. Everyone, we are told, has work, we need skills, but we cannot find employees. We want to speak positively about the profession in complete transparency."

Because the particularity of the fair is that an agricultural employment forum will be held for the second consecutive year. Facilitate meetings For Delphine Mialet, team manager at France Travail,"The objective is to raise awareness of the sectors that are recruiting and the opportunities in terms of employment. The palette is very broad and the public is unaware of this. We are here to make this job market a little more transparent, but also to identify needs and inform job seekers. The objective is to facilitate meetings and to explain how we can access these professions."

Around ten posts will be posted on the forum. In South Aveyron, around a hundred job offers are submitted to France Travail each year. The local Mission will also be present. It supports young people aged 16 to 25 who are not in school and are looking for career paths. In 2023, the local mission of Saint-Affrique welcomed 373 young people and supported 250. Last year, around twenty young people participated in the forum.

"Candidates are no longer looking for the same job all their lives, explains Delphine Mialet. Recruiters are looking for interpersonal skills and candidates are looking for quality of life at work. These values ​​must overlap. It is through meeting and direct exchange that this can match."

One of the big highlights of the spring fair is the refreshment bar, an essential meeting place, and the Friday evening meal under a heated marquee (18 & ;euro;).
