They connect industry, government, and scientific excellence to propel agri-tech solutions to market which promote circularity in agri-systems, food security & resilience, sustainable productivity and benefit our environment.

The opportunity

This exciting newly created role, reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, carries significant importance following the merger of 3 businesses in April. You will be a member of the Senior Leadership Team and will have a team of HR professionals reporting to you. The primary focus is on aligning and establishing a fresh company culture that embodies the values and objectives of this unified enterprise making it an ideal position for someone eager to make an impact and contribute to the mission of “saving the planet and feeding the world!”

Ideal candidates will be purpose-driven, possess strong leadership skills, deep HR expertise, and knowledge of UK employment law.
