Graduate Agricultural Scientist

CT19

We are seeking ambitious and motivated Graduate to join a UK based investment company focused on sustainable agricultural projects across the globe. We are looking for someone to join our team in the UK office who can grow into the role of identifying, analysing and project managing buy-and-build long-term agricultural investments.
 
There is a large commercial opportunity in producing sustainable high value crops and commodities in a long-term perspective, using innovative and ecological practices. The global population is predicted to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050, which, together with rising living standards, will boost agricultural demand and increase pressure on natural resources such as fresh water and fertile soils. Our focus is on creating value through generating superior yields of high-quality products, while preserving soils and making optimal use of water resources in favourable climates.
 
You will join an agricultural investment firm with a buy-and-build strategy, growing commodity crops and permanent crops in different countries and climates. This requires a long-term perspective on the global market dynamics of each specific crop. At the same time, it requires a thorough understanding of the technical and agronomic aspects related to these crops such as soil, water and radiation. We perform in depth research and analyse the market and economic aspects as well as the technical agricultural aspects to support our investment decisions.
 
Current projects include the development of intensive certified organic crops (walnuts, almonds, pecans, wool) on 5,000 hectares in South America and the production of commodity crops (wheat, barley, corn, soya, sunflower, rapeseed) on 8,000 hectares in Eastern Europe.
