Are you passionate about seabirds? Do you have the knowledge and experience to help tackle one of the most pressing conservation issues they face? This is one of those jobs that doesn’t come up very often – an amazing opportunity to work on one of the most exciting marine conservation projects in the world!

We are looking for a new Project Officer to work with our Albatross Task Force, a team of seabird bycatch instructors helping fishermen in South America and southern Africa to limit their impact on albatrosses and other threatened seabirds. This job involves liaising directly with project partners to deliver ambitious programme goals to reduce seabird bycatch, and as such requires cultural sensitivity, partnership building abilities and strong Spanish language skills, which will be tested at interview.

This position would suit knowledgeable and enthusiastic early career scientists looking to apply their skills to a marine conservation project aimed at making a meaningful impact.
