Organisation overview

Blue Ventures is an award-winning marine conservation organisation working to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. We’re committed to protecting marine biodiversity in ways that benefit coastal people. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and where there is a fundamental unmet need to support human development.

Summary job description

We are looking for an experienced manager to join BV’s dynamic and innovative community aquaculture programme in southwest Madagascar that is working to develop aquaculture industries around two main export products, the seaweed Kappaphycus alvarezii and the sea cucumber Holothuria scabra.

The ACSW will oversee operations, and maintain effective communications with project partners and the wider Blue Ventures team, ensuring our aquaculture projects in the southwest region, the heart of Blue Ventures’ operations in Madagascar, are delivered to a high standard.  The successful candidate will be comfortable managing a diverse multi-disciplinary team in a challenging operational environment and will thrive in dynamic, collegial atmosphere.

The Aquaculture Coordinator- Southwest Madagascar will be line managed directly by the Southwest Regional Manager, and will work closely with, and under the technical supervision of, the Aquaculture National Programme Lead.
