Farm Vet Champions Project Manager

Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem that is estimated to cause 700,000 deaths each year. That figure is predicted to rise to 10 million by 2050 if no action is taken. The improvement of professional capacity and capability for effective infection prevention and control and good antimicrobial stewardship in human medicine has been recognised as essential within the UK’s five-year National Action Plan for tackling antimicrobial resistance.  

Just entering its second phase, the Farm Vet Champions project is uniting and empowering UK farm animal veterinary professionals to establish good antimicrobial stewardship in practices and on farms, so that the agricultural veterinary professions continue to improve animal health and welfare standards and provide positive inspiration and leadership towards One Health efforts.

We are looking for an organised, self-starter who will manage and implement the project. This is an ideal opportunity if you relish a varied role with responsibility, are practical in your approach, have excellent people skills and problem-solving skills, and are eager to get stuck-in.

We champion the use of evidence-based veterinary medicine in veterinary practice, and we provide practical tools, resources, and education to the veterinary professions. We are the charity partner of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

We offer an impressive range of benefits, including flexible working, 25 days holiday, volunteering days, a wellbeing allowance, and a generous pension. We were also recently named a Top-50 Great Place to Work for five years running.
