Develop your career.   

Passionate about agriculture, but not certain how to get started or what career to choose? Looking for a role where every day is different? Join us and you will learn new skills and work hard as part of a small team in a large company with great career progression.

NIAB runs the largest field crop research operation in England and Wales, with its headquarters at Cambridge and twelve regional centres and over fifty staff directly involved with in-field trialling of crop varieties and inputs. As a result of internal promotions, we are currently looking to fill positions in our Eastern region. Those beginning their careers are also encouraged to apply to a company that has a comprehensive development programme and attractive pay and benefits package.

You will be involved in sowing, growing, assessing and harvesting a wide range of arable and horticultural crops. To be successful, you will need a good basic level of education, excellent team working and communication skills and a keen eye for detail. Some experience of working in field crop trials that includes pesticide application and crop assessment would be beneficial, but full training will be provided where necessary.

A full UK driving licence is required, as travel around the country to trial sites is required.

These positions are permanent, full-time appointments with a salary in the range of £19,626 to £25,896 per annum depending on skills, experience and qualifications and also paid overtime during peak season.

Further details and an application form are available from: or from the HR Office, NIAB, 93 Lawrence Weaver Rd, Cambridge CB3 0LE. Tel: 01223 342282. Email:

Please quote the job reference on your application.

Closing date: 10 March 2021.

We are always looking for keen individuals who wish to work hard and learn all about agriculture. Whether you have ambitions to become a Technical Expert, a Leader or an Agronomist or are uncertain what path to take, but are passionate about working in the industry, then there is no better place to progress your career than at NIAB.
