The Farmers’ Union of Wales was established in 1955 and works on behalf of members in order to deliver thriving, sustainable family farms in Wales.
The Union incorporated FUW Ltd in 2017 to manage its affairs and that company is now the owner of our Insurance Broker, FUW Insurance Services Ltd.
There will soon be a vacancy on the board of FUW Insurance Services that we wish to fill as soon as practical.
With empathy for Wales and farming, but not necessarily a farming background, we would expect that successful applicants would demonstrate some or all of the following:
A successful business background in a privately owned limited company
Experience of managing and growing a well established, multi-site business
A network of contacts that will add value to the growth of FUW Insurance Services
Experience of marketing, primarily in terms of analysis of markets in order to identify opportunities for business growth
An understanding of the insurance market
FUW is a bi-lingual organisation, therefore the ability to speak Welsh would be an advantage but it is not essential as all Insurance Services board meetings are conducted in English.
The positions are remunerated and all reasonable expenses will be reimbursed
Board meetings will generally be held in monthly in Builth Wells, with occasional telephone meetings where appropriate.
Applications should be made by forwarding a CV and introductory letter to the Managing Director.
Closing date: 0800 hrs 4 November 2019 and we wish to appoint as soon as is practicable,
