Excellence And Integrity In Global Agricultural Recruitment


With around 2,300 employees, headquarters in Reading, and offices in Newcastle, York, Carlisle, Exeter, and Workington, The Rural Payments Agency makes payments on behalf of Natural England of over £2 billion to traders, land owners and farmers, to ensure a thriving food and farming sector. Responsible for more than just payments, the agency also deals with managing farming quotas, importing/exporting licenses, managing cattle tracing services, performing farm inspections, managing the Rural Land Register, and enforcing horticultural marketing standards. Priorities for the next year include preparing for CAP reform, encouraging clients to interact with the Agency online, and complying with EU rules and standards.
