Scottish Sea Farms is the UK’s leading producer of farmed Atlantic Salmon from its marine and freshwater sites throughout the West Coast and Northern Isles of Scotland. We wish to recruit a skilled and adaptable person to join our environment team.

The candidate will be responsible for the organisation and execution of marine survey work to meet the requirements of our various regulators. Familiarity with the regulatory regimes affecting aquaculture is therefore essential.

The successful candidate will enjoy working as part of a team, but must also be capable of working without supervision and manage their own workload effectively. They also will be practical, spatially aware and computer literate with excellent oral and written communication skills.
