Our client is an agricultural levy board that plays a vital role in driving forwards efficiency of British farming and livestock production. Using funding from farmers and other independents from the industry, our client carries out extensive research and development work then distributes the results amongst the agricultural industry in order to share their knowledge and improve industry standards.
A current "hot topic" in the livestock industry is the use of antibiotics; in this job, you will play a major part in taking the lead in initiatives working to refine and reduce the use of antimicrobials (mainly antibiotics) in livestock production.
You'll do this by collecting and reporting data, liaising with research groups and connecting effectively with levy payers. You'll also contribute to our client's wider initiatives that promote good health amongst livestock, therefore reducing the need for antibiotic use.
You will have a veterinary or animal science degree and a passion for farm animal health. Ideally, you will also have on farm experience and a strong knowledge of livestock farming. Strong communication skills are essential and if you have skills in scientific writing then this would be an advantage. A full UK driving licence is necessary.
This is brilliant opportunity for you to make a difference to livestock production. Here you will have the chance to reduce the use of antimicrobials/antibiotics in livestock production and also contribute to promoting positive health for farm animals.
