Job description

This method of fishing is classified as 'low impact' fishing with low environmental damage and has created an extremely successful and stable local industry which the role of the Processing Manager will play a key role in building for the future.

  • Recruitment, training and ongoing supervision of a small processing team of up to 4 people
  • Maintaining quality, health and hygiene to high standards required by our retail customers
  • Liaison between fishers, office and customers
  • Financial control through creating rotas, managing stock and inventory, and purchase management

  • A comprehensive understanding of fish processing
  • Experience in food production for retail and wholesale customers
  • Man-management skills
  • Comprehensive understanding of HACCP and legal requirements needed to meet heath and hygiene legislation

Job details:

  • Hours up to 40 per week.
  • Based in Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne
  • Salary £25,000 plus, depending on experience, plus generous bonus
  • Start date March 2021
