Pip Job lives in central west NSW and has been a beef cattle producer for 20 years, establishing her first business at the age of 14.
The former CEO of Little River Landcare Group, Pip has worked in the not-for-profit sector for 10 years and has professional skills in the field of social capital, community engagement and natural resource management, and sustainable agricultural systems.
Pip’s experience working collaboratively with communities in an agricultural context now sees her leading a new initiative within Department of Primary Industries’ (DPI) Business & Social Resilience Program to create tools and resources which support farming family businesses to adapt to change.
Having felt firsthand the impacts of drought as a grazier, businesswoman and mother, Pip worked closely with her community to bring about change in the way people approach difficulties such as drought and business succession. She developed her ‘Positive Farming Footprints’ workshop to increase the capacity of farming families to better manage the risks and adapt to change.
