Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) has launched a new national recruitment drive to hire 52 temporary staff.

IFI’s Seasonal Fisheries Officers and Seasonal Fisheries Assistants are to be deployed across 15 counties from April to September.

Starting salaries of €29,053, per annum pro rata, are on offer, and Fisheries Officers can also earn up to €3,639 extra via an unsocial hours allowance.

There will be 14 Seasonal Fisheries Assistant positions, mainly based in Dublin, and two Seasonal Fisheries Officer positions in the county.

Dr Cathal Gallagher, Head of Research and Development at IFI, added: “Our Seasonal Fisheries Assistants will conduct applied research of fish stocks, and explore environmental issues that impact on fish and their habitats.

“They will work with an experienced team of scientists and researchers in the collection, ordering, and analysis of relevant biological and physical data in the aquatic environment. The roles will be primarily based at IFI’s headquarters in Citywest, Dublin.”

Brian Beckett, Eastern River Basin District Director at IFI commented: “As a key State environmental agency, enforcement of the law regarding illegal fishing, pollution, and habitat destruction, are a key focus for Inland Fisheries Ireland.

“We require additional temporary contract staff to support our busy annual programme of work on Ireland’s rivers, lakes, and coastlines. We’re seeking Seasonal Fisheries Officers from diverse backgrounds for a six-month period.

“People who enjoy nature and working outdoors, in all types of weather, are likely to find these fishery officer and fishery assistant jobs very appealing and rewarding.”
