Builth Wells, Powys  
c£19,000 - £21,000 per annum  

Are you a highly-organised customer service professional seeking your next step? Want to support the success of an ambitious project that will have a positive, lasting impact on the Welsh horticulture industry? If so, read on.   

Lantra is a successful commercially focused charity, providing high quality training and qualification products for skills and workforce development in land-based industries. With a staff of over ninety people and a turnover of £7m, we up-skill more than 85,000 people each year and work with businesses and other stakeholders to create innovative skills solutions. 

Currently, we’re working with a number of organisations to deliver the Horticulture Co-operation and Supply Chain Project. This project aims to prepare growers and producer-owned horticulture companies across Wales to adapt to future environmental challenges and position them to capitalise on market opportunities for business development and growth.  

Now, we’re looking for a Horticulture Co-ordinator to support the success of this project and join us on a fixed-term contract until March 2023.    

In this varied role, you will:   

- Provide administrative support to project staff  
- Manage diaries and make travel arrangements   
- Support the delivery of the communications plan, including preparing posts on social media   
- Help the Project Manager to prepare monthly claims, performance summaries and future projections  
- Maintain and develop systems for files and records   

To be considered, you’ll need:   

- Experience of working in a customer service environment   
- Previous experience of managing data   
- Excellent knowledge of MS Office 2010 applications, including Word, Excel and Outlook, as well as social media  

Diligent and detail-oriented, as a Horticulture Co-ordinator, you’ll have excellent communication skills. You’ll also be able to work on your own initiative and effectively prioritise your workload.   

Ideally, you’ll have an understanding of the horticultural sector in Wales, but this isn’t essential.    

Please note, this is a full time role. However, for the right candidate, a job share would be considered.
