Careers at AHDB

Who we’re looking for

We put people at the heart of everything we do – be that through building relationships through our network of Strategic Farms, providing nutritional information to educate children about where their food comes from, or developing apprenticeships for the next generation. We speak with honest, trust worthy advice that can be relied on – always welcoming and ready to help.

So, whether you’re an analyst, research student, experienced professional or grown up with farming in your blood, we need people who are passionate about driving change and bringing people together to innovate.

Can you help inspire our farmers to improve their businesses and compete with the best in the world? Together we will unearth all our strengths.

 

Why work for us?

The world of food and farming is changing rapidly. Working at AHDB you won’t just be helping our farmers grow the food we eat and look after our environment, you’ll be helping shape the future of food production and leaving a legacy for the next generation.

There’s so much potential, be it through developing cutting-edge and innovative technologies, protecting diversity and soil health, improving business skills, increasing animal welfare, educating our children or creating new mouth-watering recipes for us all to enjoy.

And while we develop the potential for the industry, we’ll be developing your potential too.
