Red Tractor Recruitment

A Non-Executive Director on livestock health and welfare

Assured Food Standards (AFS) manages Red Tractor Assurance which sets out to maintain, develop and promote integrated Assurance standards across the UK food chain, promoting food assurance to consumers through its ‘Trust the Tractor’ campaign.

AFS is a small Company limited by Guarantee, operating on a not for profit basis and established by six UK food chain bodies from farmers to retailers. The Board of AFS includes people from the food chain alongside independent members each with insight into key topics relevant to the objectives of the scheme.

The scheme covers meat, poultry and dairy production so expertise on the health and welfare of farmed livestock is particularly relevant and AFS is looking for a suitable person with that skill set to join the Board. The suitable person will probably be a qualified and practical veterinarian.

The time commitment would be up to 15 days every year including attendance at 6 Board meeting. A fee is paid plus travelling expenses and the initial appointment will be for 3 years.
