The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is looking for beef and lamb producers and a processor from the supply chain to join the sector board of its English beef and lamb division.

The new board member will assist the chair in developing strategy. Industry specialists are sought to play an active role for the English beef and lamb industry and command the respect of their peers.

Sector board members are expected to make a time commitment of around two days per month and attend all board meetings, with additional requirements being agreed with the sector board chair. Appointments are for three-year terms with remuneration currently payable at £256.25 per day plus expenses.

This is a challenging opportunity to contribute to the English beef and lamb industry and make a difference to AHDB. The successful candidates will be professional, flexible and adaptable in order to support the change that is required to develop the ongoing success of AHDB Beef & Lamb and AHDB.
