AHDB is working to achieve a world-class food and farming industry that is inspired by and competing with the best. Do you have what it takes to inspire our farmers, growers and industry to succeed in a rapidly changing world?

AHDB is funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain through statutory levies. It equips the industry with easy to use, practical know-how which they can apply straight away to make better decisions and improve their performance.

The Board appointments will be for up to a three-year period from the commencement date. These opportunities occur at a significant and exciting time for AHDB as it looks to respond to the global challenges facing the farming and food sectors over the coming decade.

The new Board Members of AHDB will demonstrate leadership, contribute ideas and be jointly responsible for ensuring that AHDB is a resilient and high performing body. They need to be able to demonstrate an understanding of the issues facing AHDB and the Horticulture sector as well as the wider food and farming industries.

You will have passion and a desire to ensure that levy payers get the best value for money from AHDB.
