Sustainability Researcher

Department: Other
Closing date:

You will be responsible for developing, researching and supporting the practical and commercial implementation of (mainly) land-based environmental projects at Riverford and neighbouring Baddaford Farm, with the aim of reducing environmental impacts and providing proof of concept that others might follow.
This will include providing research evidence to support communications with co-owners, customers, growers, other partners and the wider world, which will take various forms including articles, presentations, and content for our online magazine, Wicked Leeks.
You will report to Zac Goodall, our Sustainability Manager, and will work closely with Riverford founder Guy Singh-Watson at neighbouring Baddaford Farm, where some of the projects are based.
We envisage you spending 50-75% of your time working with Guy on his land-based projects, and the rest of your time supporting Zac on other projects to effect sustainability improvements, mainly (but not exclusively) in the areas of carbon emissions and biodiversity.
