What is involved and who it might suit

A Bord Bia farm inspector is a very important part of the Bord Bia Sustainable Assurance Schemes and requires a very special skill set to be successful.

  • People who like interacting with other farmers and who enjoy an outdoor, varied life
  • Young farmers who may be involved in the family farm but who may need / want something to go with that
  • Part time farmers who may need / want something to supplement their income
  • Farmers partners / wives who may be involved in the family farm but who may need / want something extra
  • If you think this might be for you, then please read on to see if this would be a fit for your particular circumstances.

    This role suits people from a farming background, who may have their own farms or be active on their family farm. It is a very flexible role, allowing inspectors choose when and where they work and caters well for specific times of the year on farm, i.e. calving season, harvest etc

    Farm inspectors must have an eye for detail and excellent observation skills, while being able to engage fully with farmers on their farms.

    This means that inspectors must be able to truly multi-task - keeping a conversation going with the farmer, while gathering all the necessary information.

    Inspectors need to be able to assess each situation and come to a balanced conclusion regarding how well the farm complies with each section of the Bord Bia standard.
