With Ed Barker departing at the end of this week after three years in the role, we are looking for a passionate and confident individual able to represent British pig producers in Westminster and with processors, foodservice and retailers, and to the media.

The successful candidate will be responsible for parliamentary liaison as well as a range of policy areas largely related to EU exit and trade. Candidates will need to have a good reputation for effective influencing and developing relevant connections with civil servants, MPs, Peers and other organisations.

"Knowledge of the UK pig industry would be advantageous but not essential, above all, we are looking for an enthusiastic and organised individual, with strong communication skills and an ability to grasp new policy areas quickly. Experience of working with MPs, lobbying or within Parliament would be desirable," the advert says. 

The closing date is Friday, September 25.
