Description

How to Apply

The purpose of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is to make our agricultural industry more competitive and sustainable through factual, evidence-based advice, information and activity.

AHDB is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain and managed as an independent organisation (independent of both commercial industry and of Government).

The Economics and Analysis Division (AHDB E&A) employs over 50 staff and provides support to our sectors (Cereals & Oilseeds, Pork, Beef and Lamb and Dairy) and directly to industry. We provide information and analysis on markets, prices, government policy, carbon markets, trade deals, farm economics, consumer and retail insight and much more.

We are currently recruiting for a Trainee Analyst, to work on a hybrid basis, two/three days from our HQ in Coventry and the remainder working remotely from home.

In this role you will have the opportunity to understand and communicate the detail of domestic and global food production and consumption trends, agricultural commodity markets, government policy and environment and to get out into the food supply chain to present and discuss these matters with key stakeholders.

We expect a lot from our Trainee Analyst. You will hit the ground running, assisting with and taking on board analytical projects both small and large, always with the support of senior team members and more formal training. AHDB take training and development seriously and there are a plethora of self-directed and external learning opportunities.

Responsibilities

Our Trainee Analyst will support senior team members by assisting with research and analysis of agricultural market intelligence, trade and policy information, consumer and market trends and environment. The work is varied, challenging and requires a considerable degree of initiative. It also offers a range of potential career development with regular on and off job training:

  • Assist with the preparation of analysis and its clear dissemination
  • Follow existing data and information processes
  • Contribute to small and medium-sized projects in consultation with other staff
  • Keep abreast of appropriate industry developments
  • Maintain effective working contact with internal staff
  • Develop communication skills internally and externally
