Description  

Are you passionate about our oceans and keen to work with businesses in supporting fisheries who have met our globally recognised Standard for sustainability?  

We are looking for a Senior Commercial Officer to join our UK & Ireland team who can support the fish and chip sector, as well as leading brands, retailers and other foodservice businesses to bring sustainable seafood to UK consumers.

The Senior Commercial Officer will support the supply chain in aiming to deliver the MSC program to UK consumers, by providing further MSC eco-labelled product on both retail packs and restaurant menus.

The UK is one of the most well-established and dynamic MSC markets. With growing consumer awareness about the challenges facing our oceans, there is ample opportunity to increase delivery of MSC certified sustainable fish and seafood to consumers.

You will be joining a dynamic team who have set ambitious targets for increasing the availability of certified sustainable seafood and the number of UK fisheries that have met our Standard.

You will be participating in multiple projects, building relationships with our partners and liaising closely with UK & Ireland Communications and Fisheries colleagues, as well as other MSC teams across our global network.

The role is an opportunity to combine strategic thinking with a ‘hands-on’ approach to drive positive change in the seafood sector and deliver on MSC’s ambitious objectives.

We’re looking for someone to join the team who has:

  • experience as an account manager and is capable of building strong relationships with commercial partners and delivering positive commercial outcomes for both partner and organisation;
  • a passion for sustainability and an interest in the health of the world’s oceans;
  • a technical and a commercial mindset, to apply the MSC’s traceability standards and licensing rules effectively;
  • a strategic thought process, capable of ensuring MSC’s value proposition remains strong and meets the needs of commercial partners.

Note: This role will be based in our London office.  We are currently working remotely, and a phased return to the office is being planned.

We look forward to hearing from you!
