We are currently recruiting for a Head of Fisheries Standard – Accessibility, who will have a central role within the leadership of the Fisheries Standards team and in supporting the Fisheries Standard Director in processes related to accessibility of fisheries to certification.

Who are we?

The MSC’s vision is for the world’s oceans to be teeming with life, and seafood supplies safeguarded for this and future generations.  Through our internationally-recognised certification and ecolabeling programme well-managed sustainable fisheries are recognised and rewarded in the market place, through the leadership of our partners.  Critically, other fisheries are incentivised to improve their performance to meet the growing demand for certified sustainable and traceable seafood choice.   Over 400 fisheries around the world, representing 17% of the annual global marine catch, are now engaged in the MSC programme and over 1200 documented improvements to the way our oceans are being fished have been recorded.  MSC certified and labelled seafood products are now available in over 100 countries.

Applications closing date:             Monday 5 May 2021 at 09:00 BST

The MSC is committed to flexible working. All MSC’s UK employees are currently working remotely, and we would expect to continue to offer flexibility as restrictions are lifted.

The MSC aims to recruit a talented workforce and values the diversity in background, skills and experience of its staff. We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all job applicants, irrespective of background.
