The Company

Recognised throughout UK agriculture for leading industry technical development and agronomic innovation, our client now requires a Technical Manager to support their continued growth by providing practical knowledge and technical expertise to the Agronomy teams. As a market leading provider of agronomy advice, technical services and crop protection products to farmers and customers through their countrywide distribution network our client is committed to continually investing in research and development to enhance their product offer.

The Role

This senior position reports to the Head of Research & Development and is a pivotal appointment for the success of the business linking the technical product offer to the commercial business activity. The Technical Manager will be responsible for providing trials, technical and commercial support to the company’s field agronomy teams and farmer customers.  As the ‘go to’ person for technical advice in the team, it is imperative that you can present concepts and lead technical discussions with colleagues, customers, manufacturers and service suppliers.

The ability to identify and propose new concepts for future research opportunities based on practical farming experience will also be critical. Most importantly you must also share our client’s passion for solving problems for their farmers and growers.
