This could be the best career you have never thought of - Agricultural Recruitment Consultant.

Job Details

You have a passion for agriculture, possibly with proven credentials in the sector, along with a desire to engage with all walks of the farming community and agri-business. Be at the forefront as agriculture embraces change, all while shaping the future of our evolving business.

As the UK's leading agricultural recruitment specialists, we know that it's our people and relationships across the industry that are the key to our success, rather than a preoccupation with KPIs or shiny suits.

You may have agricultural experience and are looking to utilise your background in a slightly different way, or perhaps you have a good commercial background and an interest in the rural way of life and are keen to train and develop- this could be the best career developing opportunity you could embark on.

Our proven Recruiter Development programme will take you through a detailed training pathway, providing you with all the knowledge and tools you need to be successful in a career in Agricultural Recruitment.

What your role will look like:

  • Deliver a professional search and headhunting process bespoke to each recruitment project (from graduate to C-level opportunities across agri-business)
  • Management of new and existing client relationships
  • Demonstrating excellence and integrity in customer service
  • Consultative service to candidates, clients and other industry figures
  • Exercise sound commercial acumen
  • Communicating effectively through multiple channels
  • Business development
  • Attendance at agricultural and related events (1-5 events per year)
  • Maintain solid grasp of current issues within agriculture and agri-business (both in the UK and globally)

What we are looking for:

  • Great people skills and an ability to build strong relationships
  • An understanding of either agriculture/food/land-based or related sectors is desirable
  • Ability to work in a close team as well as independently
  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal
  • Self-disciplined with good organisational skills
  • Solution finder
  • Excellent IT skills
  • A background in a commercial role is preferred, but not essential
