As County Adviser you will be coordinating all NFU activity within your area. You will work with elected office holders and the regional team and be a key local source of knowledge and able to offer advice and guidance on matters of policy and NFU membership. You will be able to network effectively, bringing individuals together to energise lobbying campaigns and promote NFU causes. You will also support the work of one of the NFU boards to ensure that sector views from across the North East are fed into national policy.

Most importantly, you will be able to establish a firm connection with the local membership, and ensure their views are heard. To make that member connection, you will have an in-depth knowledge of current farming issues and a real passion for agriculture, whether gained through your education, your background or your experience. 

Reporting to the Regional Director, you will manage a team of Group Secretaries, who promote the NFU and its services at a local level.
