Are you passionate about seafood sustainability and driving positive impact for our ocean resources? 

Are you a great communicator that enjoys maintaining and cultivating relationships with key industry stakeholders? 

If so, this Fisheries Outreach Manager role could be the opportunity for you!

As a dynamic and influential team member, you will play a pivotal role in developing relationships with stakeholders to promote sustainable fishing practices and safeguard seafood for the future. This role contributes to MSC’s US fisheries strategy with a focus on outreach and education to existing fishery partners, while working to expand the reach of the MSC program (namely in the US South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico).

While your partners will be based in Eastern US, their supply chains and influence have a global reach. This offers the opportunity to gain experience with global teams, fisheries, and supply chains.

You will be responsible for the management and retention of existing partners, expansion of the program with interested fisheries in the region, and working with the team to drive a strengthened value proposition for certified fisheries. The Fishery Outreach Manager will develop and deliver value to partners in a consistent and coordinated fashion, with enhanced and timely MSC-related communications and education to all fisheries, client representatives, and member companies.

Key attributes for this role include:

  • Experience working in capture fisheries management, research, policy, regulatory management, and/or operations.
  • Understanding of resource sustainability issues, specifically the fisheries and seafood industry in the eastern USA.
  • Existing familiarity with the MSC Fishery Standard and Chain of Custody Standard is an advantage.
  • A partner-focused approach that is results-oriented and built on a foundation of relationship development.
  • Ability to support and foster a collaborative team environment where ideas, strategies, projects, and asks-for-help can be shared openly among the team.

If you are ready for a new challenge and this has inspired you, please apply today and we look forward to hearing from you!

We’re an international organisation and our employees all demonstrate a level of cultural awareness, and value the diverse views and approaches relevant to the MSC program.  The MSC is committed to flexible working. The successful candidate will need to work from the Washington, DC office for a minimum of 50% of their working time each month.  The remaining time can be worked from home.

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 program, well-managed sustainable fisheries are recognised and rewarded in the marketplace, through the leadership of our partners. Over 400 fisheries around the world, representing more than 17% of the annual global marine catch, are now engaged in the MSC program and MSC certified and labelled seafood products are now available in over 100 countries.
