Fisheries Outreach Manager, Scandinavia and Baltic Sea Region

Are you a great collaborator? Can you represent a program and engage others to support it?

About the role

We’re looking for a Fisheries Outreach Manager who can lead on delivering the MSC’s over-arching aims and objectives in the Scandinavia and Baltic Sea Region. You’ll be responsible for promoting the MSC brand and increasing support for the program across interest groups, mainly focusing on our fisheries clients engaged in the MSC-program.

Who we are

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 16% 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.
