Salary - £16,946 - £21,499 plus overtime/alarm payments
Marine Harvest is currently constructing a new recirculation unit at its Lochailort site that will be operational early 2013. The new unit will produce 5 million smolts to meet the increased demand as a result of recent expansion in seawater sites and 6 million parr for stocking freshwater loch on-growing sites.
The posts will commence in January 2013 and the role is focused upon care of the eggs prior to hatching and also effective fish husbandry of the fry and smolts. Applications would be particularly welcome from candidates who have some experience in freshwater operations, however this is not essential as full training and support would be provided
The chosen applicants will be part of a large team so must be self-motivated and have good communication skills. Beyond the nature of the role, the post holders would be expected to undertake over-time as required in order to accommodate the business needs of the Unit and, for the same reason, would be part of the site Alarm Rota which would involve staying in the hatchery accommodation for approximately one week in every 4 weeks.
A driving license is essential.
