This is an exciting opportunity to join the MSC’s Supply Chain Standards team in either London, Berlin, or The Hague, working with Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs), seafood businesses, research partners, governments, and NGOs around the world to ensure the integrity of MSC eco-labelled products.


As a Supply Chain Standards Manager, you will be integral to ensuring the quality and credibility of the MSC Chain of Custody Program through policy development, relationship management, quality assurance, and incident management; as well as having an input into the strategic direction of the program.

  • has an understanding of the risks associated with different elements of food supply (and ideally eco-labelling programs) and experience in successfully managing these risks;
  • is knowledgeable about supply chain traceability and developments in this area; particularly fishery traceability requirements at sea, on landing, and at auctions;
  • is fluent in written and spoken English. Proficiency in a second language is desirable but not essential (preferred: German, Spanish, or French).
