Seawater Veterinarian/Senior Biologist
Over the coming years Marine Harvest has announced plans to invest over £100 million to integrate and grow its farming and fish feed production business in Scotland. We are proud of our 50 year heritage in the Scottish Highlands and Islands and the support we have from local communities and our dedicated workforce.
We are currently looking to identify a suitably qualified or experienced fish health and welfare professional with strong foresight and leadership skills to undertake the role of Seawater Veterinarian/Senior Biologist covering the entirety of our seawater operations. This new and senior role is to support and develop the effectiveness of our combined fish health and farm area management teams.
With several direct reports and reporting to the Head of Fish Health the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an aptitude for managing, motivating and teaching people along with an ability to proactively develop programmes that prevent fish health & welfare problems occurring, minimise medicine use, and provide a comprehensive diagnostic support service. In addition, applicants should have a high degree of computer literacy and some experience of interpretative histopathology.
As extensive travelling is a feature of the job, a current driving licence is essential.
In return the successful candidate will benefit from a salary package befitting the significance of this role, including bonus, company vehicle and the opportunity to develop their career within Marine Harvest.
If you have the drive, commitment and enthusiastic personality that is required for this senior role, please apply in writing stating your reasons for applying and your relevant skills and experiences to:
