This role is for a committed and experienced campaigner who will develop and execute our campaigns aimed at combatting Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing. The role will have a focus on the European Union, its institutions and Member States.

Though focused on European decision makers, the work will be designed to have a global impact by influencing Europe’s significant role as the world’s largest market for seafood, major distant water fleet and active participant in key fora for the global governance of fisheries. Over time, it may also include wider travel to support EJF’s work in other regions to combat IUU fishing and related human rights abuses.

Joining EJF’s UK team and working closely with colleagues across the world, the successful candidate will:
  • Prepare campaign strategies for EJF’s work to combat IUU fishing.
  • Develop deep relationships with key decision makers in EU institutions and Member States relevant to EJF’s work combating IUU fishing.
  • Work with EJF offices and other NGOs around the world to document evidence of IUU fishing and human trafficking in the seafood industry that can then be presented to governments and industry in Europe.
  • Work with a coalition of NGOs working to improve EU measures to combat IUU fishing around the world.
  • Use strong research and writing skills to convey EJF’s findings and recommendations, ensuring the highest standards of factual accuracy and integrity across our studies and documentation.
  • Give articulate and forceful presentations and effective messaging, across all platforms.
  • Report regularly, in detail to Directors and Management team

Benefits (depending on work location):
  • Annual leave of 28 days (including 8 public holidays) increasing by 2 days each year, plus 1 personal day per year, and additional paid leave over Christmas.
  • Generous employer contributory pension increasing for each year of completed service.
  • Private health insurance.
  • Option to work from home one day per week.
  • Cycle to work scheme.

About the successful candidate
  • You will have a proven track record in delivering measurable, high-impact outputs and positive outcomes for environmental or human rights campaigns.
  • You enjoy research and understand the fundamental need for attention to detail and factual accuracy.
  • You have a passion for writing and presenting to diverse audiences to secure their understanding, respect and support for your campaigns.
  • You understand the need for creative thinking to resolve issues and have experience in building effective strategies for the delivery of core messages.
  • You are happy to face challenging issues, to be a problem-solver and use tact and diplomacy to build productive partnerships and alliances, and to think creatively to generate coalitions and build audiences; you understand the need to work with integrity, tenacity and determination to secure positive change.
  • You will be able to travel frequently, often at short notice.
  • You enjoy working independently with minimal direction; you have great interpersonal skills and are happy to coordinate and share your work with the team.
  • You take pride in delivering agreed outcomes on time and on budget, at times managing multiple projects and tight deadlines and knowing how to prioritize your workload.
  • You are entirely comfortable taking direction, working in a team, with equal ability to work independently, taking initiative and responsibility.
  • You appreciate the constraints of working in a smaller non-profit, and how to leverage cost-efficient outcomes where creativity, dynamism and flexibility rather than big budgets are the key to success.
  • You speak and write English with complete fluency and you enjoy communicating with colleagues, the public and other audiences to inspire support for the environment, wildlife and human rights.
  • You know that change is not easily won, but worth winning.

Other desirable attributes:
  • Experience working on fisheries policy, including on the issue of IUU fishing.
  • Experience working with or within EU institutions.
  • Proficiency in French, German, Spanish or other language of a key EU Member State
