Partnership Manager

The agricultural industry is undergoing a profound change. Data and technology give farmers the opportunity to transform business performance, safeguard the environment, and open a new era of smart professional farming.

Want to make a difference?

YAGRO is an award-winning agritech company based in Cambridge. Since 2015, we have developed software and data tools for the farming industry to make more profitable and sustainable business decisions.

We are the industry’s trusted innovators in data. We are a tight team of farmers, technologists, and entrepreneurs. We enjoy working together. We do this first and foremost for the farmer. We are not afraid to speak the truth and challenge dogma.

Up for a challenge?

We have a great problem to solve: we have partnered with leading farm advisory companies to drive adoption of our technology across UK farms, and unlock ever greater value from data. We need to rapidly scale our relationships and reach with these Partners – that’s where you come in.

We are looking for a smart, driven individual to join us. You will have the critical task of ensuring adoption and success across our Partners’ teams. You will take on and develop relationships with in-field advisors (land agents, agronomists, consultants); help them realise the value offered by our system; and support them to scale reach across their farming clients, to execute our ambitious growth plans.

You will be representing YAGRO to the best advisory businesses in the UK. We want someone excited at the opportunity to drive change and improvement for our Partners and their clients. And hungry to drive growth and success for our team.

For the right person, there is rapid opportunity for development in YAGRO, towards senior commercial management. We will happily offer you all the responsibility you can handle.
