Sustainability Consultant: Agriculture & related supply chain
Location: Stamford – 2/3 days in the office.
Salary: Up to £30K + benefits
Has agriculture reached a mOOt point in its processes?
Have you been spending a lot of your time mOOning over renewable and innovative practices that support nature instead of antagonise it?
The organisation we are working with liaise with food producers, processors and retailers to transition them away from ineffective, outdated or outright damaging farming systems and guide them to the place where agriculture, software and sustainability meet.
But schmOOzing is not all they do! By providing assessments and offering bespoke sets of tools, they work together with farmers for the benefit of their businesses and our environment.
MOOving companies towards sustainable operations is both a noble and a necessary task.
But what does a sustainability consultant do?
If you enjoy engaging and collaborating with stakeholders both internally and externally, getting buy-in to the solutions you suggest, then designing and implementing them, alongside your passion for aiding the natural environment, this could be a perfect fit.
In that case, I’m sure you’ll agree the agriculture sector is ripe for picking!
This role needs someone super enthusiastic and creative to solve problems and you will be a key contributor to efforts designed to reduce methane and CO2e emissions in an environmentally conscious manner.
Software configuration will be a key aspect of the role. You don’t need to be a fully-fledged techie. Just bring the enthusiasm for learning on board. If technical skills aren’t a key strength now, they will be after 12 months in this role.
You’ll work with sibling companies to enable them to offer sustainability focused services to customers. They will also need your support to implement templated software and configure it to fit the bespoke purposes of new customers until they can manage that process themselves.
This means adapting data and program models for use in countries with varied climates and differing factors or influences of agricultural and environmental outcomes. E.g taking software used for a UK farmer and adapting it to a farmer in Spain, Japan or Mauritius.
This role will have room to become more varied as you settle in and grow your knowledge with somewhat unlimited opportunities for progression, but strong Excel skills will enable you to hit the ground running and the more comfortable you are with tech the better.
Their office is in Stamford, however they are able to discuss remote options on a case-by-case basis in line with ensuring you feel supported and comfortable.
So, if you’d like to take ownership of projects making a tangible difference to all those living, working on and impacted by our food systems, then please apply, call or email us now to find out more and for a guaranteed personal reply!
