£21,420 - £24,928 per annum

SAC Consulting (a division of SRUC) are currently seeking a trainee analyst to join the Scottish Farm Business Survey team. This team is responsible for assisting with the management accounts of around 450 farm businesses across Scotland. Data is used primarily to inform government of farm sector performance and to inform future rural policy development.

Analysts are responsible for collecting accounting material and related records from farmer co-operators, analysing accounts and returning the records to the co-operators after checking for accuracy. This involves scrutinising technical aspects (livestock and crop reconciliation, plausibility of yields, production, inputs etc.) in addition to financial validation (bank and net worth reconciliation).

Under the guidance of experienced Farm Business Analysts, you will be trained over time to fully develop your skills in this role.

To be considered, ideally you should possess a formal qualification in agriculture, accountancy or related subject along with a sound knowledge of farming practices and experience of farm accounting.
