Ascension is a small volcanic island situated in the sub-tropical South Atlantic with a warm stable climate (26-34°C), excellent beaches and unique biodiversity. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to our future success and to be part of a welcoming and friendly island community.


We are looking for a Director of Conservation and Fisheries to join our team and ensure the delivery of high quality terrestrial and marine conservation and research on Ascension.  You will be responsible for leading the department to achieve the objectives of the National Biodiversity Action Plan and Scientific roadmap towards an Ascension Marine Protected Area (MPA), as well as managing the commercial fishery in the Ascension Exclusive Economic Zone (EFZ).   Much of the team’s work is externally funded and you will therefore also be responsible for delivering the requirements of these grant funded projects.


We are offering a salary of £42,500, on a two year accompanied status contract with the following benefits worth up to £20,000 (dependent upon single or accompanied status):

  • Food allowance (£3028 or £6054)
  • One mid-contract return journey  to the country of recruitment/residence

  • Fully expensed company car
  • Free primary medical and dental care
  • A bonus payment on successful completion of each 2 year contract.
