Cumbria Wildlife Trust are Recruiting a Project Officer – My Local Catch
Cumbria Wildlife Trust has an exciting opportunity for candidates who have a keen interest and passion for the marine environment, sustainable fisheries and seafood. The Project Officer will be part of a diverse marine programme across the North West, working to promote the protection and recovery of marine life and blue carbon habitats in the Irish Sea.
The My Local Catch project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and will run alongside the Trust’s innovative research programme, the Cumbrian Creel project, in partnership with local, small-scale fishermen. The Project Officer will work with local fishermen using low-impact fishing methods, as well as coastal communities, suppliers, retailers, schools and youth groups, to raise awareness about the benefits of locally and sustainably-sourced seafood in the recovery of our seas. Sustainably-caught ‘local catch’ will be used and promoted throughout the project.
