You’ll achieve this by using your leadership and people skills to build strong and lasting relationships with an ever-growing portfolio of large agricultural businesses. You’ll also drive business growth beyond farming, tapping into local hotspots of High Net Worth and Small and Medium Enterprises across a range of sectors. This self-employed opportunity gives you the independence to grow your agency as far as you choose with your partners. There is plenty of scope for change and this is an opportunity for you to really make an impact.
