We are aware of concerns about a short term reduction in enforcement powers available to Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (IFCA) officers. The EU ‘control’ regulation ensures compliance with the rules of the CFP. It includes the use of vessel monitoring systems and electronic recording systems, as well as a range of other control requirements.
The MMO co-ordinates an enforcement programme, which involves monitoring, control and surveillance of sea fishing in British fishery limits around the coast of England and English vessels operating outside those waters.
The Marine Management Organisation and local IFCAs will continue to enforce the Common Fisheries Policy around our coastline. The usual level of enforcement (including enforcing IFCA byelaws etc) and spot checks are being maintained despite a short term reduction in enforcement powers available to Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (IFCA) officers to enforce certain EU legislation in the spring of 2015. The MMO is warranting a number of IFCA officers with relevant powers, so that they can continue to operate as normal, enforcing EU regulations relating to fisheries and marine conservation as well as their own byelaws.
We have an immediate opportunity for an experienced Administrative Officer to join our team based in Blyth. The job is a permanent position of up to 37 hours per week (hours may be negotiable for the right candidate) with a starting salary circa £20,000 depending upon experience and qualifications.
Duties include providing general PA services to the CEO, especially minute taking and dealing with general office administration including maintaining and developing office systems and procedures to support the needs of the Authority. The successful candidate must possess excellent IT skills including Word, Excel and Outlook.
Please email your CV to Mike Hardy, CEO at email@example.com or post to 8 Ennerdale Road, Blyth Riverside Park, Northumberland NE24 4RT by Friday 8th May 2015.
