We rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities
Blue Ventures is a marine conservation organisation that puts people first. We support coastal fishers in remote and rural communities to rebuild fisheries and restore ocean life. Our work began two decades ago in Madagascar’s remote coastal communities and is growing globally.
Across a dozen countries, we’re partnering with traditional fishers and community organisations to design, scale, strengthen and sustain fisheries management and conservation at the community level. We bring partners together in networks to advocate for reform, and share tools and best practices to support fishing communities across the globe.
Summary job description
We are looking for a Campaigns Advisor to join our growing advocacy team to support, develop and deliver campaigns globally and nationally.
In this new role, you’ll be at the forefront of Blue Ventures’ advocacy work on industrial destructive fishing and marine tenure rights. You’ll be working with members of the Blue Ventures-hosted Transform Bottom Trawling Coalition, small-scale fishers (SSF) groups and civil society organisations to support campaign design and implementation, helping build a concerted global movement for small-scale fishers. You’ll technically support and coordinate effective campaigns that positively impact the livelihoods and well-being of coastal communities.
The successful candidate will be an excellent communicator with a proven ability to engage with a wide range of audiences and partners and to communicate complex ideas in a way that is highly engaging and influential. A creative thinker and fast learner, you’ll be comfortable with complex projects and will demonstrate a track record of working in an organised, consultative and inclusive way.
You will have experience designing and leading global campaigns as well as supporting and coordinating national campaigns across different geographies. Ideally, you will have direct experience in either community-based conservation or human rights work, combined with knowledge of either human rights, tenure rights, transparency, small-scale fisheries or marine conservation.
