NAFC Marine Centre

Marine Spatial Planning Officer (Implementation)

NAFC Marine Centre is seeking an individual to join our Marine Planning, Policy and Advice Section as Marine Spatial Planning Officer (Implementation).  

The successful applicant will have responsibility for continuing the work done so far through the Scottish Sustainable Marine Environment Initiative (SSMEI). The Shetland Marine Spatial Plan (SMSP), developed under the auspices of the SSMEI, is currently being implemented on a voluntary basis, but continued work is required to encourage its use with Council planners, regulators, advisors and developers to realise the benefits it can bring.

A relevant degree or diploma is essential and you should have a strong understanding of ecological processes and services, including impacts from different maritime activity. With a minimum of 3 years experience in environmental and/or marine management, a good understanding of Local Authority Planning regimes would be a distinct advantage, preferably gained through work in coastal areas. Good analytical, communication and IT skills are essential to the post, including the manipulation of GIS data.  You will need to disseminate the project outputs through various media, including web updates, promotional material and updating the Marine Spatial Plan, as well as presenting at relevant national and international workshops and conferences.

In line with our commitment to being a flexible, equal opportunities and family friendly employer, job share working arrangements will be considered (two suitable candidates would be needed to cover the whole post) as will a secondment from another employer (subject to a formal agreement).

This is a fixed term appointment for one year. Salary is in the range of £23,000 - £25,000 based on experience (inclusive of Distant Islands Allowance).
