The Scottish Farm Business Survey team completes 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.

Farm Business 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).

To be considered, a formal qualification in agriculture, accountancy or related subject would be an advantage. Candidates with a minimum of two standard grades or equivalent including mathematics and English language, and who can demonstrate appropriate experience and skills, are welcome to apply.

Sound knowledge of farming practices and relevant experience of farm accounting is essential and experience of computerised accounting packages or book-keeping beneficial.
