AgriWebb is united by a passion to impact the livestock industry in a socially responsible way. We believe in improving animal welfare, land usage, meat production, consumer transparency and environmental sustainability. Our mission is to deliver the digital future of agriculture!
AgriWebb is transforming the industry from paddock to consumer. Doing that requires always looking after our core customer: The farmer. Without them, everything else falls over. We bring leading edge technology to nurture sustainable farming practices and we want to make an impact at a global scale.
When it comes to our people, our focus is on balance. AgriWebb is playing the long-game and we want to foster talent who will grow with us. We know this means recovery and balance are critical to help our people be their best in and outside work as well.
5 years in, we’re scaling up in Australia, we have an office in the UK and have global expansion plans. Our people are our biggest asset, so we need someone fantastic to take a strategic view of nurturing and cultivating our team. Someone to be a true partner to the business as we set ourselves up for success, nurture our culture through rapid growth and help us to take a long-term sustainable view. We’re looking for someone with a growth mindset who can help us define what the people needs are and to liaise with our external recruitment agencies to find talent.

- Recruitment (15%). We need the systems and processes to manage the creation of job descriptions, interview process and onboarding for new talent, so our hiring managers can partner with our recruitment agency partners to find the right talent.
