Global Trials Manager

  • A key role in the development of new and environmentally sustainable crop protection solutions.
  • Spearhead trials activities on a global basis!


Experience / Key Skills required:

  • Demonstrable background in designing and executing efficacy field trials in the Plant Science and/or Crop Protection domain.
  • Ability to manage multiple ongoing trials across a variety of geographical locations.
  • Experience working with CROs and managing those relationships accordingly.
  • An educational and research track record in a discipline such as; Plant Science, Agriculture, Horticulture, etc.
  • Specific expertise in herbicide resistance or weed science a bonus (but not essential).
  • Happy with very frequent international travel (not expected to entail long periods of time away, but will be required - sometimes at short notice - to a variety of global locations).



This pioneering AgTech company, having grown from start-up phase in recent years, is leading the way when it comes to the discovery and development of new, novel and sustainable herbicides and weed control solutions.

With an established UK based R&D unit in place, consisting of a multi-disciplinary team of scientists & tech experts, attention is now turning towards trialling newly discovered solutions in 'real world' field environments.

A Trials Manager with a global remit is therefore required to lead such activities. Extensive experience in spearheading efficacy trials from Plant and Crop related solutions and products will be needed, along with the ability to work on an international basis - often necessitating travel to global locations at relatively short notice.

A background in a related discipline, such as Plant Science or similar, will be required - with specific expertise relating to herbicides and weed biology an added bonus. Prior exposure to management responsibilities, of people and/or CRO relationships, would also be highly beneficial.

In return, this role will give somebody the chance to work in a highly impactful role, in an outfit that is still small and agile enough to ensure you'll have a genuine influence on greater sustainability in the AgriFood domain!
