The Agricultural Programs Specialist supports the work of the Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District (FCNRCD, the District). FCNRCD is a subdivision of state government that is largely grant-funded; we coordinate available resources to promote the conservation of natural resources through education, conservation programs, and technical services.

The position is responsible for directly supporting agricultural producers with nutrient management planning, data collection and entry for participation in programs, leading agricultural conservation-related projects from start to finish, writing grant applications and proposals on behalf of agricultural producers, coordinating agriculture-related events, and providing technical assistance related to conservation projects, agronomics, soil health, viability programs, and other topics, as appropriate. This position will receive some support and oversight from the District Manager and other FCNRCD staff.

Requiring a large amount of interaction with varied stakeholders (private landowners, farmers, forestland managers, municipal staff, and project partners), the ability to create and maintain positive relationships is critical. This position includes a seasonal mix of computer-based and out-in-the-field work with the majority of each year being computer-based.

A person who will be successful in this position is a capable “generalist” who is detail-oriented, highly organized, adaptable, independent, and has strong interpersonal, project management, and leadership capacities.
