Seasonal Fisheries Officers from Dublin will join teams over the summer months to help protect, conserve and develop fisheries resources working in and around Ireland’s lakes, rivers and coastlines.

Inland Fisheries Ireland is looking for candidates for both ‘protection’ and ‘development’ roles and they will play a crucial part in the agency’s plans for 2023, according to its HR Director, Róisín Bradley.

Launching the recruitment drive, Bradley said: “Our new Seasonal Fisheries Officers will be joining us to help protect, maintain and conserve this country’s natural resources. As an environmental agency, enforcement, protection and development are a big focus for us. Our teams undertake over 30,000 patrols around the clock every year, including patrols by foot, e-bike, vehicle and boat. At the same time, our development teams ensure the sustainability of fisheries habitat, enabling access for this generation and for future generations.”
