We are working with a really interesting and leading firm of rural surveyors, town planners and business consultants who’s offices range from the North West Midlands through to the Midlands supporting rural and residential clients and providing a high-quality service.
This role will involve providing strategic consultancy and business advice primarily to a wide range of agricultural businesses. This strategic advice will be primarily based around finance and taking a closer look at client’s accounts for areas that they can improve or develop further as a business. This can be anything from re-structuring a business’s finance to identifying areas to make savings or rural grant funding to pursue. Technical and hands on experience will also be beneficial as this role will need you to understand how businesses run and demonstrate credibility in the sector.
There will be a certain element of doing your best to develop business and grow the client base where possible. This is a great opportunity for an agricultural consultant who is looking for a move to a more strategy-based role, or someone working in the finance sector who would like to move their skill set further into the rural sector.
The successful candidate will have the following skill set:
An agricultural, agribusiness or farm management facing degree or equivalent financial qualification.
Experience in the agricultural sector, either a background or an association will be considered. Ideally 2-3 years in the sector.
Experience working at a strategic level and an understanding of accounts or balance sheets will be crucial to this role.
Excellent communication, Microsoft Office and relationship management skills will be paramount to building rapport with clients.
There is a great salary on offer for the right candidate along with a package that will reflect the candidates experience.
