SSTP Project Coordinator Vacancy

SSACN have a vacancy for a SSTP Project Coordinator

Last year we were very fortunate to receive funding support from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Argyll and the Islands LEADER Programme which enabled us to recruit James Thorburn, our ‘Sharkman’.

This really accelerated the progress of the SSTP and enabled us to put successful data gathering and reporting infrastructures in place as well as undertake a number of activities to increase public awareness of the issues through school visits, websites and social media etc.

Thanks to the commitment of all those who have supported SSACN and the SSTP Events / activities, we have been able to secure a second funding package from the same organisations.

The Project Coordinator will continue to focus on the acquisition / validation and analysis of tagging data, outreach activities and communication programmes, as well as assisting with tag distribution, training anglers in the use of tagging equipment.

Basic details of the position :
The position will be offered on a one year contract basis (salary equivalent £17k to £21K/annum) and the successful candidate will need to be based in the Argyll region, will be expected to work from home and will occasionally be required to work outside normal office hours to support various events and initiatives.
