Dear Coral List,
Could you please add the following job postings to the list. Thank you.
Net Gain 'Developing North Sea Marine Conservation Zones'
The Net Gain MCZ Project has been set up to plan and develop a network of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) in the North Sea through a stakeholder led process. The goal of the MCZ network will be to contribute to the UK Governments commitment of establishing an ecologically coherent network of effectively managed Marine Protected Areas by 2012 with the aim to safeguard marine biodiversity and to ensure the long-term sustainability of marine resources.
To help achieve this goal, Net Gain is looking for people who want to make a real contribution to the conservation and sustainable use of our seas and we have the following positions available:
MCZ Stakeholder Manager £28,000 - £35,000 depending on experience. 37 hours per week.
You will be responsible for coordinating the engagement of a wide cross section of stakeholders in the Marine Conservation Zone planning and decision making process so that the final network is well supported and understood. You will play a key role in ensuring that potential social and economic consequences of the MCZ network are taken account of in the decision making process through ongoing impact assessments.
You will provide support during Stakeholder Advisory Panel meetings - where site recommendations will be made - and ensure effective communication between Panel members and their sectors. You will work throughout the Net Gain area to establish regional hubs which will provide a forum for local and regional stakeholders to provide comments and feedback on proposed MCZ sites. You will coordinate the activities of the regional hubs, planning and delivering regular workshops at each and communicating the outcomes to all relevant parties. You will work closely with the Senior Liaison Officer to ensure that national and international stakeholder interests are considered in the MCZ planning process.
The candidate should have a good degree and postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject (marine biology, fisheries, ocean sciences, environmental science or related subject). You should have proven experience in working with multiple stakeholder groups, be an excellent communicator and have a confident, outgoing manner. Experience in the Net Gain project area is desirable.

You will lead a team of four Liaison Officers working throughout the Net Gain area. The liaison team provides the principal link between the project and marine stakeholders such as commercial fishermen, sea anglers and the recreational sector. The liaison team will play a key role in building awareness about the project, its goals and the importance of gaining good information of where maritime activities are concentrated. Your time will be divided between the Net Gain office (at the Deep in Hull), liaison officer outposts and coastal locations, discussing the project and using a questionnaire and mapping technique to collect activity data and knowledge from stakeholders through interviews. You will ensure a coordinated and effective approach to information gathering, collating data, evidence and opinion to pass to the project team.
You should have an excellent knowledge and understanding of marine activities in the English North Sea, e.g. sea angling, commercial fishing, offshore renewables or other commercial interests. You should also have a higher level education in a relevant subject (marine biology, fisheries, ocean sciences, environmental science or related subject), professional qualifications, or extensive experience gained in one or more maritime industries. You should have proven experience in working with a wide cross section of people, be an excellent communicator and have a confident, outgoing manner. You should be competent in using computers for e-mail and Microsoft Office.
