Job Description


Are you an accomplished, confident, approachable and empathetic manager? Do you want a job where you make a difference every day? Can you listen as well as talk, be organised as well as flexible?  If this is you, then you should take the next step and apply to join the family of the Fishermen’s Mission.We are looking for three Area Operations Managers to deliver frontline emergency response, practical welfare and pastoral support operations throughout the UK.

The three regions are:

  • Around the west coast of England to Weymouth, Wales and Northern Ireland.

  • The east and south east coast of England (from Eyemouth in the north to Poole in the south)

  • Scotland including the islands

This job is about commercial fishermen and their families and the Fishermen’s Mission staff that support them in times of need.  You will be able to drive consistency and professionalism in service delivery and lead the application of the charity’s values. You will be able to communicate clearly the bigger picture of the charity's aims and will also have the attention to detail to make sure everything is running like clockwork, both from an administrative perspective and in terms of HR, compliance and governance.

The role will entail significant travel to staff at the fishing ports and harbours across your area. As a key player in the Head Office team, you will also be able to input to the development of operations at the management level. This is one of the most rewarding jobs you could ever hope to have. 

The Fishermen’s Mission is a Christian charity that has been around since 1881.  We help active and retired commercial fishermen and their families.  You could be part of our vital work.   Relevant experience is important, but we’re not caught up in qualifications; we are looking for the right person.  Someone who can organise and inspire a dispersed and diverse team to perform willingly and consistently.  Sound like you? Get in touch.
