Farm Stock (Scotland) Ltd, Scotland’s largest farmer owned livestock marketing cooperative, is looking to appoint two Trainee Livestock Procurement Officers to help realise its ambitious growth targets and expansion plans.
Farm Stock is a farmer owned business trading livestock on a deadweight basis throughout the whole of Scotland supplying UK abattoirs and in turn the major supermarkets. With a current annual turnover in excess of £17m, its mission is to build a strong sustainable business that is capable of maximising returns to producers through economies of scale, negotiation power through volume and by matching stock with abattoir demand. Farm Stock also handles both store and breeding stock.
The successful candidates who will be commercially aware and highly motivated individuals, will be based in Northumberland/Borders and Central Scotland and will become part of a hands-on team dedicated to expanding and growing the business.
Practical livestock knowledge and experience is a pre-requisite however extensive training with the existing commercial team will be provided. The remuneration package will be commensurate with experience. A full job description is available on request and details of the company’s operations can be found at www.farmstock.org.uk.
If you feel you have the necessary skills and drive to be part of a fast growing and innovative farmers’ co-operative, we would like to hear from you. Please e-mail an up to date CV and covering letter explaining how you can help Farm Stock achieve its objectives to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive before the closing date of 18th May 2018.
