A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to become the new Chief Executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society (founded 1904). The high-profile nature of this role and the society which it leads, coupled with its infrequent appearance as a vacancy, makes this an enticing prospect for which we are seeking an inspirational leader to shepherd us on the next stage of our journey following the impending retirement of our current CEO.
As the head of one of the most successful agricultural societies in Europe, whose jewel in the crown is the annual Royal Welsh show held at our famous permanent showground in mid Wales, you will be responsible for the strategic and operational day-to-day management of the organisation and its staff, as well as providing overall stewardship for the well-established network of thousands of volunteers, stakeholders, committee members, and advisors who come into contact with us every day.
Further details, including job description and person specification, is available at https://rwas.wales/the-society/jobs/. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the current Chair of the Board, John T Davies (07977239352 / firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Chair-elect Wynne Jones OBE (07712646310 / email@example.com) for an informal conversation.
A CV detailing your suitability for the role as per the person specification, and a covering letter that details your experience of change management and your leadership in the development and delivery of a strategic business plan should be sent to Caron Evans (Head of Administration, recruitment@RWAS.co.uk).
The closing date for applications is 12:00 Thursday 21 April, 2022.
Assessment and interviews will be held in person in and around our headquarters and show ground at Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, week-commencing Monday 09 May.
