By promoting ocean sustainability we contribute to global efforts to improve long-term food security, maintain and strengthen livelihoods, and ensure healthy oceans now and for generations to come.

Our certification and ecolabelling programme empowers fishers, retailers and consumers to demonstrate their commitments to sustainable seafood. We work in a diverse multi-stakeholder environment: from working alongside scientists and environmental NGOs; to recognising and incentivising change within the fishing industry; to partnering with major retailers and brands to grow consumer awareness and understanding of sustainable seafood. Ours is a fast paced environment, which requires managing multiple priorities and working with numerous partners to find joint solutions.

Successful communications and marketing is vital to driving awareness and use of the MSC label. As a result, we’re overhauling our digital channels to ensure they effectively tell our story and that stakeholders find it easy to understand and support our work.

Our global website, currently supports 15 languages and is managed by staff in 18 offices. You’ll have the opportunity to work with communications colleagues from around the world, and be able to train, influence and guide them on how to use the new CMS to develop local content.

You will be a core part of the team delivering this major project, liaising with suppliers, managing acceptance testing and coordinating migration of our existing websites onto a single consolidated platform.

You’ll also work collaboratively with the Global Communications and Marketing team and technical specialists to build and manage global digital assets which support the MSC’s vision and mission.
