Further information

The North of the Tyne Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) which covers fishing settlements from Berwick upon Tweed to North Shields has recently been established through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). The role of the FLAG is to support economic growth and the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy reforms using community-led local development within the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. The FLAG’s Local Development Strategy sets out the priorities for enabling this to take place within the North of the Tyne area (refer to attached document)

The North of the Tyne FLAG is looking to recruit a highly motivated Programme Officer to lead the establishment, delivery and management of the FLAG programme which has been awarded £800,000 EMFF funding. The Programme Officer will be required to support fishermen and associated businesses to apply for funding from both the FLAG and the main EMFF programmes which are managed by the Marine Management Organisation.

You will be a well organised self-starter, with excellent communication skills and a good knowledge of the fishing and aquaculture sectors together with knowledge of grant funded programmes. You will have experience of partnership working and leading volunteers and groups.

This is an exciting opportunity to work directly with the fishing and aquaculture sectors within a beautiful part of England. Your base will be County Hall Morpeth, where you will be part of a team who deliver and manage other community –led local development funding programmes. However, as the majority of your work will be from satellite offices located within the Fishing communities of the FLAG area, the role will involve significant travel. You are therefore required to hold a driving licence and access to a vehicle.

Secondments will be considered.

Interview will take place on Monday 16 January 2017.
