The district also hosts a network of nationally and internationally important Marine Protected Areas. 

IFCA’s have been tasked by Defra to support the planning, preparation and publication phases of Fisheries Management Plans (FMPs). FMPs are a new policy tool which Defra and its Arm’s Length Bodies will use to implement the objectives of the Fisheries Act 2020. This is a unique opportunity to be involved in innovative work which is shaping the future of fisheries management.

Working in the Fisheries Management and Policy Team you will represent Southern IFCA at FMP meetings and working groups. You will coordinate the provision of information, evidence and data to support the development of the FMPs, as requested by delivery partners and as guided by your line manager. You will work with local and national colleagues, as well as help to coordinate communications and engagement with the inshore fishing communities. 

This is an exciting time to join the Southern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority, where realisation as an independent coastal state is forging new ways of governance in inshore fisheries. We look forward to receiving applications from dynamic and motivated individuals who are invested in promoting and delivering the IFCA vision.
