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 an Assistant Operations Manager to work closely with the Operations Manager to deliver frontline emergency response, practical welfare and pastoral support operations throughout the UK. 

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 throughout the UK. (Easy access to major travel routes would be an advantage as it is anticipated that the succesful candidate would be expected to be travelling and visiting operational staff around the UK for approxiamately 70% of the time. )

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?
