Job Details

If you are looking for a change of career without sacrificing being on-farm, becoming a rural compliance/health and safety consultant with a trusted, well established business may be the right path.

 This well renowned company with eleven consultants based in Wiltshire are seeking a second consultant to join the team due to consistent business growth over the last four years. With health and safety being a nonnegotiable part of any successful farm or rural business, play a central role in guiding farm businesses through times of uncertainty.

In this consultative role you will be working within a well-established team advising farmers and keeping your clients well informed and compliant, making what can be a very overwhelming and time consuming area of business run as smoothly as possible.


You may already be working within the agricultural sector or you may be in a role where time management and diligence is equally as important. This opportunity would offer full training and a long lasting career for the right candidate.

The role in brief :

• Ensure that client farm operations adhere to all relevant regulations, standards, and codes of practice set forth by governing bodies such as DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs), the Environment Agency, and local authorities.

• Maintain accurate records of all activities related to compliance, including permits, licenses, inspections, and any remedial actions taken.

• Ensure that all required documentation is complete, up-to-date, and easily accessible for regulatory audits or inspections.

• Support implementation of environmental stewardship programs aimed at minimizing the farm's ecological footprint and promoting sustainable practices.

• Develop, implement, and enforce health and safety policies and procedures to ensure a safe working environment for all farm personnel.

• Conduct inspections and risk assessments to identify hazards and address them promptly.

• Identify potential compliance risks and develop strategies to mitigate them effectively.

• Collaborate with internal stakeholders, such as farm managers, supervisors, and workers, to foster a culture of compliance and continuous improvement.

You will have :

• An agricultural background would be a clear advantage

• Ability to build longstanding relationships across the farming community

• The ability to work within a team

• Excellent communication skills

• Attention to detail

• Time management

• Excellent record keeping skills

• The ability to introduce the business to new clients

• Full, clean UK driving license
