Do you work or have expertise in organic aquaculture?
Our Aquaculture Standards Committee needs you!
We are seeking candidates with skills and experience - technical, production or academic - in organic aquaculture ideally from direct involvement in production or processing of fish, bivalves or seaweed. We are looking for people with:
- knowledge about the organic aquaculture sector
- empathy with our aims and objectives
- experience of working to reach collective decisions.
Our standards committees provide the technical and industry knowledge which supports our standards development and making recommendations to our Standards Board.
Joining a Soil Association standards committee is in a personal capacity, not as a company representative and issues discussed are confidential. Membership brings many benefits, such as networking with like-minded professionals, career-boosting experience, opportunities to apply knowledge and learn about industry details which are normally restricted – as well as contributing to the development of Soil Association standards.
We welcome applications from people working in all sizes of business – large, small or micro – as well as those with other experience of the aquaculture industry. By becoming involved you will add your voice to the one hundred-plus professionals involved in Soil Association standards development.
The Committee meets up to twice a year, usually in Edinburgh. We would like successful candidates to attend a meeting of the Committee on Monday 7th September in Edinburgh. This is a voluntary position, with travel and subsistence costs reimbursed. For more details please send your CV and covering note to Isabel Griffiths, Standards Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 21st August or call Jen Collins on 0117 314 5178 for more information. We will be holding telephone interviews in the last week of August.
