Hours: Full time 37.5 hours per week with occasional weekend and evening working
Term: Fixed term to 31 March 2023, which may be extended subject to funding and performance
Location: Homeworker / Office-based
Reports to: National Angler Engagement Manager

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a well organised and capable individual to join the Angling Trust as a full time Angler Engagement Officer. Working from home and/or from our offices in Leominster and Ilkeston, this role offers a varied and interesting workload, with scope for involvement across a broad range of activities. This opening represents a fantastic career opportunity to work within angling and to make a positive difference for the future of our sport.

Angler Engagement plays an important role within our National Angling Strategic Services (NASS2) contract work with the Environment Agency. As part of a small team dedicated to this area, the successful applicant will support efforts to ensure that anglers, angling clubs & fisheries receive clear messaging around topics such as:

  • Enforcement
  • Invasive Non-Native Species
  • Funding
  • Biosecurity
  • Fisheries Management
  • River Restoration

These messages are delivered through a combination of channels, including Fisheries Forums, social media pages, blogs and websites. The Angler Engagement Officer will play a key role in the curation and maintenance of these different channels, primarily through administrative support. Creative outlets will be available to supplement this work.

Although Covid-19 has necessitated the adoption of virtual platforms to deliver Fisheries Forums in the past 18 months, we hope to return to face-to-face meetings in future. These take place across the length and breadth of England, so regular travel and overnight stays will be necessary.

As a public-facing Angling Trust member of staff, the ability to communicate effectively with anglers both in writing and in person is considered essential. You should have a knowledge of (and passion for) freshwater angling across all disciplines.

The Angling Trust is the united representative organisation for marine and freshwater angling in England and Wales.
