Oxford with flexible working and travel

For 160 years the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution has been supporting the farming community in England and Wales. We offer financial support, practical care and guidance to farming people of all ages, including farmers, farmworkers and dependants.

Today we are facing perhaps the greatest challenge in our long history. Such times demand that we look at how we do things in the best interests of the people and community we serve.

Our regional volunteer structure in no longer able to run their fundraising programmes that existed before the Coronavirus pandemic struck and it will be some considerable time before we are able to return to anything that resembles normality. Over the next few years the farming community will be faced with unprecedented challenges that will affect many aspects of their lives.

The Programme Manager is a member of the Senior Management Team with a key role in redefining and developing the role of R.A.B.I.’s network of 49 regional Branches and Committees.  Working closely with the team of Regional Managers and senior colleagues, the role is pivotal to redeveloping the future local support base of R.A.B.I. to deliver truly impactful local engagement and income generation.

The primary purpose of the role is to engage with the team and Branches to better utilise the existing strengths of the local volunteer bases and develop and support these relationships. 

The aim is to establish and embed shared working across the network to ensure R.A.B.I. works collaboratively with volunteers to better meet the needs of the community and strategic goals of the charity.
