Job Title:  Science Communications Manager

Location: London, United Kingdom

Working Hours: 9:00am – 5:00pm

Are you passionate about science communication and empowering people with clear and accurate information?

 Do you believe that we should safeguard fish and sea life for future generations? 

If so, then you could be the perfect fit for the Marine Stewardship Council!

Who are we?

The MSC’s vision is for the world’s oceans to be teeming with life, and seafood supplies safeguarded for this and future generations.  Through our internationally recognised certification and ecolabeling programme well-managed sustainable fisheries are recognised and rewarded in the marketplace, through the leadership of our partners.  Critically, other fisheries are incentivised to improve their performance to meet the growing demand for certified sustainable and traceable seafood choice.   Over 400 fisheries around the world, representing 16% of the annual global marine catch, are now engaged in the MSC programme and over 1200 documented improvements to the way our oceans are being fished have been recorded.  MSC certified and labelled seafood products are now available in over 100 countries.

We’re looking for a Science Communications Manager to help deliver our new science communications strategy. At the interface of the Global Communications & Marketing and Science & Standards teams, you will be responsible for helping ensure that all MSC staff have great content about our scientific work that's relevant to, and appropriate for, our audiences.

Bringing an audience-centred digital-first approach you will produce web, print and social media content for both consumers and stakeholders, communicating complex MSC standards and programs in accessible and engaging ways, and supporting our science team to communicate effectively.

You’ll be responsible for a range of projects involving close cross-organisational collaboration. These include communicating the MSC Fisheries Standard Review and building our wider ocean voice that shows the relevance of MSC to consumers, retailers and the fishing industry.

Who are you?

You will:

  • Be educated to degree or equivalent level in a science discipline;

  • Have a track record of effective complex science communications to diverse audiences; and

  • Want to make a difference to the sustainability of our planet.
