Our marine environment is facing some of its biggest challenges ever.

Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect the precious wildlife and habitats.

We need your expertise to make our voice heard among the people who can have a hand on turning the tide of this ocean and coastal crisis.

Could you make compelling cases to the right people at the right time in order to influence the changes we need for our seas to be full of life, where nature flourishes and people thrive?

We’re searching for a highly motivated and experienced Public Affairs Manager who will be able to develop effective and significant relationships with key influential parliamentarians and Government representatives on marine policy and legislation.

If this floats your boat then our seas need you – more now than ever.
MCS is the UK’s leading marine charity and our team work to ensure that our seas are healthy, pollution free and protected. Our reach is broad, which makes for an ambitious and challenging remit – being our advocate in Westminster will be inspiring and rewarding.

You’ll be based in our offices in London, with regular contact and visits to our head-office in Ross-on-Wye. You will also link up with colleagues in the Devolved Administrations.
