Angling Trust Vacancies

Regional Enforcement Manager – North East

Salary £25,000 – £30,000 pa pro rata.
Part time – 18.75 hours per week
North East, Home-based

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and experienced enforcement professional to join us in a key role as one of six Regional Enforcement Managers.

In this rewarding and varied job, the successful applicant will build upon the momentum achieved by the Fisheries Enforcement Campaign since 2012, raising awareness, increasing confidence and intelligence, initiating intelligence-sharing and a partnership approach. Regional Enforcement Managers are responsible for managing the Voluntary Bailiff Service to a proven model, working closely with the Environment Agency and police.

Applicants should ideally have professional experience of working in the areas of Rural and Wildlife Crime, ideally with a keen interest in angling and environmental issues. Most important is a sound knowledge of modern policing methods, particularly concerning intelligence, partnership working, and getting the best from volunteers; experience of working with the Special Constabulary and Neighbourhood Watch would be advantageous. Experience of IT, Data Protection and confidentiality issues is prerequisite. A passion for angling is essential, and a knowledge of angling politics and the Environment Agency’s remit advantageous.

Excellent communication skills, including giving presentations, report-writing and experience of using social media to raise awareness is essential. You will be home-based, diary-led, and parameters of working hours are flexible to accommodate commitments – there will be some weekend working and travelling. You must be conscientious, self-motivated and have the ability to engage with and motivate others. Working as part of a team of six Regional Enforcement Managers within the Fisheries Enforcement Support Service, you will report to the National Enforcement Support Manager, be diary-led and work remotely.

The Angling Trust is the national representative body for angling in England and Wales.
