Have you got what it takes?

We are looking for a highly motivated individual who has experience in delivering high profile compliance campaigns and enforcement communications strategies. You’ll need to work closely with our National Enforcement Manager and Regional Enforcement Managers, as well as the Environment Agency and police forces to create and deliver an effective communications strategy for this vital area of our work.

You’ll need to be able to collaborate with our volunteer bailiffs, monitoring material and stories to maximise publicity opportunities. You’ll forge great relationships with key influencers and partners, including police forces, to maximise the reach of your campaigns as well as effectively engaging our wider audience on social media, ensuring our messages are engaged with and understood.

You’ll be responsible for ensuring our content is kept up to date and accurate across all our channels and help with the creation of new, fresh engaging content – especially bite size video for engagement and education. You’ll also be coordinating key activities to drive people to register and attend our Fisheries Enforcement Workshops and to promote recruitment for our Volunteer Bailiff Service.

You’ll need to know your way around web content management, email marketing systems, social media tools and effectively report results and measure success – often delivering reports to multiple partners!

You will need to have a background in delivering high profile compliance campaigns to deliver this role effectively and ideally have some experience as an angler.

You’ll enjoy working with a dedicated team who share your passion for delivering an extremely high standard of work.
