Mission Area Officer – Orkney (Part-Time)

The Fishermen’s Mission aims to maintain a strong ecumenical Christian presence throughout Orkney to provide emergency, practical welfare and pastoral support to active and retired fishermen and their families of all faiths and none.

A part-time, 3 days a week MAO (Orkney) is an expansion of our commitment to the area, which has been served for some years by a part-time volunteer. As the MAO (Orkney) role develops, it is anticipated that additional operational and administrative staff may be required, while volunteer recruitment and management will also be encouraged.
The core work is peripatetic outreach activities that involve significant amounts of travel around the area to build relationships, unearth suffering and deprivation and to deliver event or life-changing outcomes for our beneficiaries, no matter how remote or isolated.

Commercial fishing in and around the islands of Orkney faces many, often daunting challenges, from strict legislation on fisheries, catch size and days at sea, to bad weather and shoe string margins. By some measure, fishing is the most dangerous occupation in the UK.

The MAO is an exciting and very challenging role. The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic nationwide team at a time of significant development within the Fishermen’s Mission.
