Over the coming years Marine Harvest has announced plans to invest over £100 million to integrate and grow its farming and fish feed production business in Scotland. We are proud of our 50 year heritage in the Scottish Highlands and Islands and the support we have from local communities and our dedicated workforce.

This year has marked the arrival of new non chemical methods in lice treatment.  We currently operate 3 Hydrolicing systems.  A further 2 systems, including a Thermolicer, are due to be in operation this year.  These machines are proving highly effective for the non-chemical removal and capture of sea lice. 

Due to the current incumbent leaving the Company, we are currently looking to recruit a suitably qualified, experienced and highly motivated individual to take on the role of Assistant De-licing Systems Manager in this new and specialised area in farming.

Potential candidates should possess several years’ salmon farming experience, have a sound understanding of fish husbandry and have the ability to problem solve using their own initiative.  Good communication & planning skills and a high degree of computer literacy is also essential. The post also requires a high level of technical ability and competence in order to fault find and train operators in the operation and maintenance of the systems.  It is also a requirement of the post that the incumbent be an effective deputy for the Manager as and when required, assisting with the man-management of the operators and the coordination and logistics of the treatment vessels. In addition, applicants should have a full driving license and be prepared to undertake significant travel as required.

If you have the drive, commitment and enthusiastic personality that is required for this interesting, important and novel role, coupled with the relevant experience, please apply in writing, no later than Friday 23rd December 2016, stating your reasons for applying and your relevant skills and experiences to: Gillian Dempster, Human Resources Advisor, Marine Harvest Scotland, Stob Ban House, Glen Nevis Business Park, Fort William, PH33 6RX.
