Genus is an agricultural biotechnology pioneer. We are a global FTSE 250 company, headquartered in the UK, and listed on the London Stock Exchange. Genus PLC has a presence in over 70 countries and a global workforce of over 3,000 employees and growing.  We are a worldwide leader in porcine and bovine animal genetics, partnering with farmers to transform how we nourish the world – a mission that is important to a sustainable future. 


Food consumption is expected to rise by 60% in the next 20 years. Our challenge is to affordably and sustainably meet that escalating demand while global resources diminish.  Our vision is clear: Pioneering animal genetic improvement to help nourish the world.


Promar International is the sister brand of Genus ABS, Genus' world-leading bovine genetics company. Promar International is the leading provider of consultancy services to farmers, food companies and retailers. Promar International understands that no two businesses are ever the same and offers services to support farmers to achieve their business objectives, providing information to help them to improve farm performance.

Role Overview

Farm businesses need to make a profit, feed people, care for the environment and ensure the planet will sustain future generations. It’s a tall order, but one which is endlessly fascinating. Backed by the Promar team, you will be in the best position to help farm businesses by balancing the books and managing their accounts.


Promar International is recruiting for a remote working Farm Business Secretary (also known as Farm Business Analyst) to provide bookkeeping and management accounting for customers on a full-time, permanent basis in East Midlands.


As a Farm Business Secretary, you will be responsible for a portfolio of customer farms assigned to you by Promar International. It will be your responsibility to manage your diary and caseload - the business will measure outputs by income and workload target. If you're looking for a career opportunity with flexibility to compliment your lifestyle, apply with your CV today.


The Promar International team will provide you with the training and tools to excel in your role, including a company car, mobile phone and laptop. You will work at the customer farm to complete most of your tasks; you will have the freedom to complete some tasks remotely from home. Promar International is implementing new accountancy software (Xero and Figured) to enable digitisation and efficient processes. Your initial training will include work shadowing and observation, followed by on-the-job learning - upon completion of your induction training; you can expect to attend group training at least once every two months.


The opportunity of Farm Business Secretary offers flexibility and career advancement. Whether this is your first accountancy role or you're an experienced accountant, apply now with an up to date CV.
