The Agency is seeking a Director able to lead its Welsh Executive and has today placed advertisements in the media.

This role requires a natural communicator and a visionary leader able to advance the Agency’s food safety and healthy eating agenda.

The job involves working with partners across Wales, the UK and internationally, advising the Welsh Government and delivering enforcement and consumer protection.

Strength of character and clear judgement, plus the stature to command respect and build credibility are important. So too is the ability to progress the Agency’s programme in a way tailored to
the needs of the country. The job holder will need to take account of the objectives of the Welsh Assembly, while preserving an ‘arm’s length’ relationship with Ministers.

The Director must also be able to operate as an integral part of the organisation’s UK-wide corporate management team.
