 - Achieve and surpass target volumes and margins in line with sales strategy.

 - Grow market share across the region

 - Add value to our customer base through nutritional advice, business insight, and general guidance

- Be part of the ruminant team, sharing knowledge and best practice from a commercial and nutritional perspective


- Proven agricultural sales experience (within an agricultural industry)

- Ability to build relationships with farmers

- Understanding of the UK agricultural market

- If from a relevant sector, ideally a substantial ledger in excess of 8000 tonnes
