Scottish Sea Farms is looking to recruit a proven and exceptionally talented Marine Farm Manager to manage and develop our new £3.3m marine salmon farm at Lober Rock in the Scapa Flow region of the Orkney Islands.

Due to be stocked in September 2019, Lober Rock will be the latest farm to open in the Orkney region with 12 x 80m pens – and we require your energy and vision to help shape its success.

Your ability to plan ahead will be matched by close attention to detail. It is essential to value our unique Orkney identity and have the skills to grow premium quality differentiated salmon for customers with the highest expectations.

Our managers are expected to be industry leading with competence in finance, budget control and planning, stock management, stakeholder interactions, personnel
management and promotion of health and safety – Lober Rock will test and develop these skills.
