Introduction

Seize this great opportunity to join a forward thinking and rapidly growing organisation and make a positive impact on global fisheries conservation. Lend your fisheries expertise to MSC’s mission of helping transform global fisheries through its leading international certification and ecolabelling program for well-managed and sustainable fisheries – a program distinguished by high scientific standards, independence, transparency, stakeholder engagement and comprehensive consistency with FAO guidelines.

MSC's Fishery Assessment Managers play essential roles in achieving the MSC mission by carefully reviewing fishery assessments conducted around the world by independent, third party evaluation teams. By this review process, the fisheries team contributes to the quality, consistency and credibility of fishery certification decisions. Team members are also involved in managing special projects to help evaluate and improve the performance and benefits of MSC fishery certification. The position has significant opportunities for independence and teamwork plus collaboration with leading fishery scientists around the globe as part of special project involvement.

The variety of fisheries and management challenges, along with the diversity of people involved, make these posts extremely interesting and intellectually stimulating in very unique ways.

Required skills

Due to recent changes within the team and a planned expansion for the coming year, MSC is recruiting three additional Fishery Assessment Managers at this time. One of these placements will be on a short term contract of up to one year to provide cover for the maternity leave of a current team member.

At this time, we are looking specifically for candidates with experience:

- in stock assessment and management of North Atlantic / EU fisheries,
- in ecosystem-based fisheries management and ecosystem modelling,
- as an MSC audit team member, or
- in the development and management of certification systems.

If you have such experience, we want to hear from you. Your past successes include working with diverse stakeholders, demonstrating strong analysis skills and systematic problem solving, displaying sound judgement and decision-making, and advancing solutions to fisheries sustainability issues. Along with excellent written and oral communication skills, you are well-organised, highly productive, people-centered and outcome focused.

Candidates are required to have at least 3-5 years of relevant professional experience with stock or fishery sustainability assessments, research, management or policy development.
