Great Salary & Benefits
Our client is one Europe’s leading Agri-businesses. They provide farm business management and advisory services in the UK and overseas, with almost fifty years’ experience of delivering solutions for their farming clients. The key to their ongoing success is the people within the business – their people are their strength. They have created the ability to draw together outstanding individuals who work collectively to deliver top level results so that their clients see them as trusted, valued partners within their own business.
Their management team are rigorously selected and always demonstrate a commitment to hands-on farming, as well as an innate understanding of the business models they are working to. Their people are rooted in the reality of day-to-day farming, benefitting from on-going technical and business skills training, supported by their in-house research & development department.
As part of their “value add”, they offer a defined Agronomy service to farmers wishing to retain executive control of their business, but with the benefit of accessing independent, up to date agronomic information. Their Research & Development department provides its management team with independent technology and the Agronomy Service clients receive the full benefit of this work allowing them to make informed, independent decisions on crop management. As well as the usual agronomic advice, the Agronomy Service also offers:
- The only national supplier of independent agronomy
- Access to truly independent and up to the minute R&D
- Flexibility ranging from annual strategic meetings to full weekly crop walking
- Charges that reflect the level of input required, scale and cropping
- Written input recommendations and planning
- Option of the businesses “best buys” around input purchasing with price level and payment terms to match the managed farms
Due to ongoing aggressive growth, they are now looking to complement their team by the addition of a market leading Root Crop/Potato Agronomist to work in partnership with their long-standing customers and R&D division.
Establishing first class customer relations and working with integrity in the best interests of their customers is at the heart of their agronomy philosophy. You will of course have experience of the agricultural industry and a sound knowledge base having either worked in an agronomy role or related post for at least 5-10 years in the root crop/potato arena. You will hold FACT’s and BASIS and be self-motivated and driven with a desire to develop first class customer relationships based on mutual trust and understanding. There is the opportunity to spearhead this area of the business for the Group and look to take it on as your own to drive this area of agronomy forward as your own.
A very competitive remuneration and benefits package will be offered for the right individual.
