Communications Manager - Enforcement
Salary £14,100 (£28,200 per annum pro rata)
Part time – 18.75 hours per week.
Location: Home-based with options to work from Angling Trust offices at Leominster or Ilkeston

The Angling Trust, working in collaboration with the Environment Agency, is seeking a highly motivated individual who has experience in delivering high profile compliance campaigns and enforcement communications strategies.

This role will support the Fisheries Enforcement Support Service (FESS) and National Enforcement Manager (NEM) to develop and implement an effective communications strategy across all marketing channels, working in partnership with the Environment Agency and Police.

This role will deliver against targets within the new NASS2 contract (National Angling Strategic Services Contract Two – 2019-2023), working in partnership with the Environment Agency and is funded by rod licence sales.

Have you got what it takes?

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with experience of delivering high-profile compliance campaigns and enforcement communications strategies - who, working closely with the National Enforcement Manager (NEM) and partners, will help create and deliver an effective communications strategy supporting fisheries enforcement.

The Fisheries Enforcement Support Service (FESS) is funded by English freshwater fishing licences through the Environment Agency (EA) via the National Angling Strategic Services Contract, and exists to increase the support available to the Agency. Managed by the NEM, the FESS includes six Regional Enforcement Managers and an Intelligence Manager, all of whom are retired police officers.

The FESS delivers a high-profile partnership initiative through Operations TRAVERSE and LEVIATHAN, working closely with individual police forces. Key to this process is the near 500 strong Voluntary Bailiff Service, in which anglers are trained to report incidents and information to a high evidential standard, acting as 'eyes and ears'. This has proved a massively popular and productive initiative, for further information click HERE.

Given the publicity arising from this activity, there is now a need to devise and agree a robust enforcement communications strategy with the EA, ensuring that messages are consistent and maximising on publicity opportunities arising from the work of the FESS and VBS. Importantly, this needs coordinating with the communications platforms of policing and other partners, and engaging with the wider angling public and general public via social media platforms. We are looking to raise awareness, increasing in the process confidence, intelligence and compliance.

The FESS also delivers the Angler Education Plan, aimed at upskilling the angling community regarding the relevant law and intelligence-led process, a key component of which are Fisheries Enforcement Workshops requiring promotion. Moreover, to provide visual references for policing partners and the angling community, we will be creating informative bitesize video for hosting on a new FESS YouTube channel.

The successful candidate will be familiar with web content management, email marketing systems, social media tools and well able to effectively report results and measure success.

Preferably, some knowledge of angling and the angling scene would be beneficial.

The FESS is a highly professional team which has transferred policing experience and skills to continue making a difference - if you share a passion for delivering to the highest possible standards and possess the necessary experience, we would be delighted to receive your application.
