About the role:

We are looking for a dynamic, experienced, and capable Farm Advisor to help progress our ambitious Wilder 2030 Strategy.

The Trust’s Wilder Strategy sets a bold target to influence at least 30% of land and sea to be managed in a way that supports nature’s recovery. Farmed land within Hampshire will be integral to the nature recovery network.

Economic challenges for farming and the uncertain policy and funding framework provide a platform for a diverse range of options to be explored and developed for farmers.

This role will support the Principal Farm Advisor working across an established, but growing portfolio of clients and projects, principally across the chalk landscape straddling central Hampshire and beyond.

Working as part of a team of four advisors, this role will support the expansion of chargeable services via the Trust’s commercial wholly owned subsidiary Arcadian Farm Advice. The Farm Advisor will ensure that delivery stays in line with our strategic goals and work collaboratively across the organisation and with key partners.

The successful candidate will have a good understanding of financial viability in relation to the advice given. This must include an understanding of the challenges faced by the climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis and how this goes hand in hand with supporting the future sustainability of farming and its livelihoods.

This is a great opportunity to make a real difference in a rewarding job in one of the most beautiful areas of the country.
