Technician: Holywood Breeding Centre, Dumfries, Scotland

AquaGen is the world’s leading supplier of genetics to the global salmonid aquaculture industry. We have recently acquired production facilities at Dumfries, where a significant capital investment is now underway to produce salmon eggs for the Scottish and export markets.

In line with our infrastructure development we are looking to expand our workforce with the recruitment of a site technician. The ideal applicant will have some hands-on aquaculture experience with a positive and open personality. This is a great opportunity to join a new team at an exciting, early stage of development.

The role is very much “hands-on” and will involve a wide range of tasks, from general fish husbandry to technical aspects of salmon reproduction and, for the right applicant can be the start to a rewarding, interesting and varied career path in a global business. Full training in technical aspects will be given.

In return the successful applicant will benefit from a comprehensive and competitive package of remuneration, company pension and insurance benefits.

To apply: Please submit a covering letter and C.V. to before 12th July 2019.
