Each IFCA needs members who will take a balanced approach to caring for our seas, assessing the priority and importance of all users and stakeholders. The Sussex IFCA is seeking proactive individuals with good communication skills and a demonstrable ability to disseminate IFCA regulations, policies and guidance through their network of contacts to serve as a member.
Andrew Wareing, Director of Digital and Analysis at MMO, responsible for IFCA selection, said:
These are exciting opportunities for people with experience and a passion for their inshore marine area to play a major part in shaping how their local area is managed. If you want to make a positive difference and help balance economic, social and environmental needs, we would be pleased to hear from you.
MMO invite applications from all industry sectors, however we would particularly welcome applicants from the commercial and recreational fishing sectors.
The deadline for applications is 23:55 on 4 January 2021.
