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 currently recruiting a Project Manager to lead our efforts supporting local partner organisations in the Comoro Islands. The role will entail leading Blue Ventures’ partnership project with Anjouan-based NGO Dahari.

The successful candidate will provide bespoke training and technical support to Dahari in all aspects of fisheries assessment, including monitoring and evaluation of landings using mobile-based data collection systems, and supporting Dahari in efforts to assist communities in the management of target small-scale fisheries.

The position will report to Blue Ventures’ UK-based Conservation Projects and Grants Manager, with an additional reporting line to the Technical Director of Dahari, and will receive support from other members of Blue Ventures’ conservation team. The position will oversee at least two members of the Dahari team, providing direct training and technical support to strengthen Dahari’s capacity in marine and fisheries management. The position will be based with the Dahari team in Anjouan, with regular national travel to work with communities, partners and field teams.

Additional responsibilities will include working with partner organisations and colleagues in Blue Ventures’ conservation team to plan national and regional community exchanges to share learning and best practice in tropical small-scale fisheries management and locally-led marine conservation.

The successful candidate will be a motivated, proactive and highly organised individual with an excellent knowledge of the small-scale fisheries, marine conservation and development sectors, as well as a proven track record of team management and partnership building, and excellent communication skills. Ideally, you will demonstrate practical experience of community-based conservation and development initiatives.

Blue Ventures is a fast growing and mission-driven social enterprise, offering excellent opportunities for further professional development.
