Inland Fisheries Ireland has launched a recruitment drive aimed at hiring 36 new Seasonal Fisheries Officers across the country. The six-month posts are divided across 15 counties including Roscommon with recruitment getting underway immediately.
Seasonal Fisheries Officers from Roscommon will join teams over the summer months to help protect, conserve and develop fisheries resources. They will work in a around Ireland’s lakes, rivers and coastlines.
Inland Fisheries HR Director, Róisín Bradley said the new officers would carry out patrols by foot, e-bike, vehicle, and boat. “Our officers working in protection will spend a lot of their time patrolling lakes, rivers and coastlines. While officers working in development will also spend a lot of their time around lakes and rivers, as they build, repair and maintain structures,” she said.
“Those that enjoy being close to nature and working outdoors, in all types of weather, are likely to find these roles in Roscommon very appealing and rewarding”.
The agency plans to launch a second recruitment drive later in the year for Seasonal Research Assistants.
The seasonal recruitment campaign opened for applications on Saturday last (4th). Those interested in applying for a six-month Seasonal Fisheries Officer role are encouraged to do so online at www.fisheriesireland.ie/careers, before the deadline of Tuesday, February 21st.
