The Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS) is best known for organising the Great Yorkshire Show in July, but perhaps is lesser known for the work we do throughout the rest of the year. A registered charity, founded in 1837, YAS was established to promote agriculture in Yorkshire and our first objective was to run a major agricultural event.

Purpose of the Role

However, the team promote our values of Professional, Respectful, Open-minded, United and Dedicated, therefore it is essential to support the work of the Association’s and Society’s Charitable activities in spirit and, where necessary, hands-on.
