Marine Harvest supplies healthy, delicious and sustainably farmed salmon and processed seafood to more than 70 markets worldwide. In 2016 harvest volumes of salmon were 381,000 tonnes (GWE).
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.
We are currently looking to identify a suitably qualified or experienced fish health and welfare professional with strong foresight and organization skills to undertake the role of Health Manager for Upper South Mainland & Small Isles. The successful candidate should be a sharp individual, with good understanding of production needs, and ability to solve problems in a practical way. This is a challenging post which involves a lot of field work and a small amount of office based tasks. Candidates should be willing to travel around sites and work under unfavourable weather conditions.
The successful candidate will report directly to the Head of Fish Health and work closely with the corresponding Area Manager for the region, as well as the rest of the Health Team. Candidates must be able to demonstrate an aptitude for working independently, have the ability to apply common sense, motivate and train site staff, as well as an ability to proactively participate in fish health decisions. As extensive travelling is a feature of the job, a current driving licence is essential.
We welcome enquiries from everyone and value diversity in our workforce. We are willing to consider flexible working arrangements and are an Equal Opportunities employer. Informal enquiries can be directed to Meritxell Diex Padrisa: Mobile 07833 045290 or the Human Resources Department.
