The SEA Alliance recognises that industry leadership and accountability is critical to improving labour standards and safeguarding human rights in the global seafood industry, which is why we are working with stakeholders to develop a set of specific, timebound commitments to be adopted by our members, as well as other major retailers and seafood businesses involved in the global seafood industry.
We are seeking a corporate engagement and strategic communications specialist to work with us on a 12-18 month project. This will involve working alongside the Head of the SEA Alliance, the SEA Alliance Secretariat, SEA Alliance members, and other stakeholders.
The project will involve:
- Undertaking a detailed mapping and analysis of retailers and seafood businesses in Europe and North America that the SEA Alliance should engage with in its work on human rights and labour standards in the global seafood industry.
- Supporting the Head of the SEA Alliance to convene SEA Alliance members and other stakeholders to develop a set of commitments intended to be transformative in driving respect for human rights and improved labour standards in the global seafood industry.
- Organising a series of roundtable meetings to enable a wide range of stakeholders (inc. retailers, brands, seafood processors, fishing companies, trade unions, fishers’ organisations and Government representatives) to feed into the development of the commitments, the implementation process, and how implementation will be monitored.
- Being responsible for the drafting of the corporate commitments and associated guidance, with input from the Head of the SEA Alliance, SEA Alliance members, workers organisations, the fishing sector, and wider stakeholders.
- Undertaking outreach with individual member companies and other organisations to seek their input into the development of the commitments, and to provide updates on key developments.
- Supporting the development of new, targeted outreach with retailers and brands in Europe and North America to build awareness and adoption of best practice in undertaking Human Rights Due Diligence in seafood supply chains, and to promote adoption of the commitments.
- Drafting and delivering high quality guidance and information on the commitments and wider HRDD in seafood supply chains for a diverse audience.
- Supporting the Head of the SEA Alliance and SEA Alliance Secretariat on the implementation of the wider work of the SEA Alliance, including the HRDD, advocacy and Change on Water work-streams, and in particular a project to lead the evaluation of the Change on the Water Fund projects the SEA Alliance is supporting.
- Working alongside the Head of the SEA Alliance and the SEA Alliance Secretariat to develop and execute a high-quality strategic communication strategy, including the creation and delivery of high-quality communications materials.
