As you explore the different pages of our website and the many aspects of our organisation, we hope you’ll get a better idea of who we are, what we do, and how we do it.
We have lots of talented people here at AHDB but we’re often looking for skilled people to come and join us. If the work that we do and the manner in which we do it appeals to you, perhaps it's time to consider developing your career with AHDB?
We want brilliant and knowledgeable people who can work and thrive in a challenging and demanding environment, one in which they are motivated to maximise their own potential, but also one in which they enable others to reach theirs as well.
What We Look For
We’ve found that people who do really well at AHDB tend to have strengths in specific areas.We look for evidence of these strengths at every stage of our recruitment process in order to establish whether you’d be great at the job you are applying for.These skills will vary from role to role, but you should still be able to pick most of them out from the job description.
Some generic skills that we look for in everyone:
We want our colleagues to feel that they can grow both personally and professionally by being stretched, offered new challenges, and finding the scope to make a difference. That’s why we not only offer an environment of stimulation, but we also provide the opportunity for development and progression; one in which you can grow as much as a person as you can as a professional. We understand that by having a skilled and motivated workforce we will achieve our objectives and develop as a business.
Below are our current opportunities. If you can't see what you're looking for, we might not have the right opportunity available for you at the moment. We update this page as soon as we start the search for new people, so please continue to check this page regularly.
