Location: West Midlands
Job type: Permanent
Your diploma is not just a piece of paper: you will have to use everything you learned on your fisheries science course (or similar) in this role. This role will feel a bit like the on-site project work you completed as part of your master’s degree in Fisheries Biology or Fisheries management, or maybe like the work experience you have in a fisheries biology role for another seafood business. Similar, but not exactly the same, as the young company I am recruiting for is experienced far beyond its heritage.
The directors and managers of this company and the allied businesses are from successful backgrounds in highly complex food manufacturers that supply premium products to high end retail categories. They bring this high quality attitude to their roles, and this philosophy has filtered down to all parts of the business.
This company is a seafood business that has a presence at all stages of the supply chain, so you will get exposure to all stages in fish product manufacturing. You will have to travel all around the world to visit other business units as well as coach other businesses that are suppliers. You will also spend some of your time on the familiar stuff; collection of fisheries data and analysis.
The people are great as well, which is why this role is an addition to the team, not replacing a leaver. Low staff turnover means fewer vacancies for me, but better vacancies to talk about when they do come up.
If this is what you have studied for and you have the practical experience as part of your projects at University or in your first job or to, then I want to hear from you. Really soon.
Salary is to be determined by what you can offer, but £35,000 - £40,000 is what we have in mind. They’ll pay your air fare and travel when you are travelling around the globe (7-10 day excursions at the most) and there will be wonderful people in the office when you aren’t.
