Job description

About our organisation

The Soil Association, formed in 1946, is the only UK charity which works across the spectrum of human health, the environment and animal welfare. That’s because we cannot tackle these issues in isolation.

We campaign for change, we support farming innovation, we serve healthy food in communities, we support and grow the organic market, and we protect forests. We couldn't do any of this without our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world where it’s needed the most.

About the opportunity

Be part of the Soil Association Exchange team of Advisors providing agroecological farming advice nationwide. Contribute to knowledge exchange within the team and help build the service. Soil Association Exchange is a fast-paced, commercial startup that spun out of the Soil Association charity in 2022. Soil Association Exchange is a new service for all UK farmers to help them farm in a way that improves the climate and protects nature. SA Exchange works with farmers to measure the environmental impacts of their farm across 6 different metrics – and then delivers bespoke advice on how those scores can be improved. Crucially, it then helps farmers understand and take advantage of the links between farming more sustainably and farming profitably. More information on SA Exchange can be found at www.soilassociationexchange.com.
