Chief Executive, Agricultural Industries Confederation
The Agricultural Industries Confederation is the agricultural supply industry’s leading trade association. It has over 250 members in the agrisupply trade and represents a £6.5 billion turnover at farmgate. It works on behalf of its members by: lobbying policy makers; delivering information; providing trade assurance; and offering technical support.
The Chief Executive will promote the AIC’s work through a range of fora, including meetings with UK ministers, EU officials and MEPs to discuss key issues and legislation to ensure the views of the sectors it represents are heard.
This is an industry critical role which will demand an articulate and engaging candidate to represent AIC members in a wide range of contexts within the UK and beyond. S/he will need to bring – and be able to develop – a strong understanding of the issues the industry faces.
