Fishery Assessment Manager London

Currently reporting to the Senior Fisheries Assessment Manager (SFAM) although subject to change to meet operational requirements, the MSC’s Fishery Assessment Managers implement the MSC’s policies and procedures for the assessment of fisheries against the MSC’s Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Fishing (the MSC Standard). Each Fishery Assessment Manager has organisational responsibility for implementing key elements of the fishery assessment process, such as leading review of assessments for a particular geographic region or leading review of specific elements of the assessment process (e.g., annual surveillance audits). Additionally, the position is responsible for implementing or evaluating key elements of policy projects, as delegated, as well as developing and implementing internal evaluation tools to assess the effectiveness and delivery of MSC programme elements.

These key roles require developing and maintaining a comprehensive understanding of the basis, implementation and intent of policies related to MSC’s standard setting and interaction with Certification and Accreditation Bodies. The position holder coordinates MSC’s review for component aspects of fishery assessments among headquarters and regional staff, helps evaluate programme performance and recommends improvements. Regular and effective communication with a wide variety of interested parties, both internally and externally, is essential. This includes representing the intent and status of MSC’s certification programme to a wide range of audiences.

The post requires strong scientific, technical and management skills and relevant experience in the wild capture fisheries field.
