The aim of this event is to raise awareness and increase knowledge of the careers available in Scotland’s land-based, aquaculture and environmental conservation sector. Due to the pandemic, we are going virtual, with the event being open to anyone interested in finding out more about careers in our sector, whether that be career influencers, students, parents or career changers.

Hear directly from those working in the sector about the exciting opportunities on offer.

The event has been structured so that you can stay for the whole day or attend sessions you’re interested in finding out more about.
