Vacancy for State of the East Coast Review (SEaCoR) Project Manager

A new post has been developed to carry out a review of the Scottish East Coast.

Four Coastal Partnerships (Forth Estuary, Tay Estuary, East Grampian and Moray Firth) have come together to update and expand on previous studies. SEaCoR will have two stages; firstly discovery and data gathering from as wide a collection of stakeholders as feasible; and secondly to interpret, present and publish this as comprehensive “State of the East Coast” reports available at Scottish Marine Region and Local Authority levels, and contribute to Marine Scotland’s national knowledgebase.

The SEACOR Project Manager will:
• Be responsible for overall planning and delivery of the project on time and within budget;
• Lead, manage and actively support a small team of project officers to engage with stakeholder organisations to identify available datasets and also ascertain gaps in their required knowledge;
• Co-ordinate data interpretation, presentation and publication of reports; plus co-ordinate contribution of data to Marine Scotland’s National Marine Atlas and the NMPi interactive resource.
• Compile and publish digital newsletters to disseminate knowledge and insight throughout the project duration.

SEACOR is funded by the Scottish Government and the European Commission through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). The project is scheduled to complete by the end of 2021 but work could be phased more concurrently to finish earlier eg. if Brexit arrangements necessitate an earlier final grant claim. The Project Manager will be expected to see the project through from commencement to conclusion.

The official project office is near Edinburgh. However we are keen to identify the best candidate for the job, and applicants from any part of the east coast are invited to apply; the Coastal Partnerships have offices in Grangemouth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.
