The role will put the successful candidate at the heart of fast-moving representational politics at a time of unprecedented change for this iconic sector.

You will be part of a team known across the livestock industry for its ability to punch above its weight and to go ‘above and beyond’ in support of its members.

Being part of this small but highly motivated team means you will be guaranteed variety and responsibility in the role, but with the full support of the team in areas where you may not currently have experience.

You will be responsible for animal health and welfare policy areas specifically but will be involved in others as necessary, and will have every opportunity to hone your communication skills both internally and externally.

You will put your own stamp on the job and want to make a difference. It will be challenging but highly rewarding.

The salary will be competitive and dependent upon experience. The role will come with a number of benefits including flexible working, the option to be home based, company pension, car loan scheme and generous holiday entitlement.
