An excellent career opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic person to trade feed into Scotland for a national agricultural business. The role will be based in the open plan office in the West Midlands area, where the team will provide additional training and on-going support. The successful candidate will report into the Trading Manager.

The position will involve helping farmers throughout Scotland to select what is best value for their purposes and promoting the company as a supplier of feeds and seed. This is a role for a confident person who is comfortable talking to farmers about their businesses in order to identify the opportunities to sell appropriate feeds to them. This is not "a foot in the door sales role" - it is about selling the right product to the farmer and providing a good service. A flexible approach to work will be required to support all aspects of the office functions.

A broad knowledge of farm livestock production will be preferred but a willingness to make the effort to learn quickly will be acceptable if you have the right personal skills. People with a wide range of backgrounds are invited to apply. This is a full time, permanent position.

Requirements:

  • Enthusiasm and determination.
  • Ability to build business relationships with farmers.
  • Livestock nutritional knowledge.
  • Previous trading experience is desirable.
  • Organisational skills.
  • IT skills.

Rewards: The salary will be competitive and will grow along with success in the role.
