Description

JNCC’s Marine Management Team provides evidence-based advice on the environmental impacts of activities taking place in the offshore marine environment (beyond territorial waters) to appropriate authorities responsible for their regulation. The advisory functions of the team are centred on helping government(s), regulators and developers meet the requirements of relevant legislation, including the Habitats Directive, Birds Directive, Environmental Impact Assessment Directive and the Marine and Coastal Access Act. The majority of the team’s work focuses on advising on impacts of offshore oil and gas, aggregate extraction and renewable energy, as well as other industry sectors. We also advise on the development of marine plans.

As conservation advisers, JNCC has a significant role to play in the management of the offshore marine environment and we work closely with our partners and wider stakeholders to deliver sustainable management approaches. This includes advising on management of the network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the UK offshore marine area.

The closing date for this post is 09:00 on 26 July 2019
