You will join us as a County Adviser working with elected office holders, the regional team and be a key local source of knowledge as well as being able to offer advice and guidance on matters of policy and NFU membership.
County Adviser Responsibilities:
You will be able to network effectively, bringing individuals together to energise lobbying campaigns and promote NFU causes. You will support the work of allocated NFU Boards or Forums to ensure that sector views from across the North East Region are fed into national policy.
Reporting to the Regional Director, you will manage a diverse team of Group Secretaries, who promote the NFU and its services at a local level. Your role is to manage your group secretary network in order to achieve our membership objectives to grow our representative power. Experience of managing a team is therefore advantageous.
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. Knowledge of the local area and its agricultural/land-based industry landscape would be ideal but not essential.

One of your strengths is that you are people orientated and build lasting business relationships, often tending to see the positive side of things.

You like variety and are energetic in your work approach, and you are keen to develop yourself professionally.
