Eden Search & Select are delighted to continue working with Fram Farmers, one of the largest and most progressive farmer owned cooperatives in the UK. To achieve their ambitious vision of the future Fram Farmers now require a Non-Executive Director to provide a creative contribution to the board by providing independent oversight to the executive directors. With a long heritage in providing excellent value to members the group recognises the wide range of technical and commercial opportunities that the future will bring and wishes to ensure these opportunities are delivered to the membership.
Today the group’s strength comes from an extremely high level of commitment from the membership, the focus of the board of directors and the team being as close as they can to the members needs and delivering the best service and value of any farmer cooperative in the UK.
Working as a Non-Executive Director you will formally meet with the board regularly and in addition, you will be encouraged to participate in other sub-committees and member meetings as required. You will be responsible for setting strategy, ensuring correct resources in place to achieve strategic aims and monitoring performance of the Executive Team. Also, you will oversee and ensure robust governance and risk management systems are in place at all times.
As a strategic and creative thinker, you will have a high-level understanding of the food and farming industry and previously have had Board level commercial experience. You may come from a procurement or supply chain background with a good understanding of customer experience and finance. With excellent leadership and interpersonal skills, you with be highly capable of working effectively as a member of a team with the ability to motivate and support the senior team. Most importantly you will need to be committed to the business and have a willingness to get to know the Fram Farmers wider team.
