An Agribusiness Manager looks after the business operations of a farm or agricultural company. Your role will be varied but could involve things like marketing, accounting and developing strategies to increase profitability. You’ll not only be balancing the books, you’ll also be keeping necessary records and making sure the business meets the requirements of any industry regulations. You may have to manage staff and you might sometimes be called on to pitch in with a bit of farm work.
Your role as an Agribusiness Manager will require you to stay on top of any developments within your industry. You’ll need to keep a close eye on the balance sheet of the business and consider ways to improve profitability. You’ll be liaising with buyers, stockists and workers so people skills are a must. You’ll need a good head for figures and have to be able to plan ahead. This is a role that requires a bit of flexibility so make sure you’re adaptable.
