Come to work with Cornwall Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority and have this view on your doorstep.

We are seeking a full-time, desk based Scientific Officer for 18 months to assist Cornwall IFCA with the management of inshore fisheries around the coast of Cornwall and to meet some of our statutory obligations.

You will join a small team where you will analyse fisheries and marine environmental data to inform and support the decisions of the Authority. Additionally, you will be required to assist in preparing reports and responses to various consultations.

You will have a BSc (Hons) in a marine science discipline and you must be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of relevant biological/ecological assessment techniques.  You will need excellent communication skills – written and oral. You will work as part of a team and after training, be confident of working alone when required.

Experience in fisheries or marine research and/or management is desirable and you will have knowledge of Cornwall IFCA’s work.  Ideally you will also be able to demonstrate experience using GIS, using analytical software packages and be able to evidence a good understanding of marine environmental legislation.

Whilst our office is based in Hayle in west Cornwall, evolving ways of working means that the role may require you to also work remotely (e.g. from home/other locations). We will discuss this with you during the recruitment process.
