Vessel Day Scheme Manager


The Parties to the Nauru Agreement seek an individual to join its team as Vessel Day Scheme Manager.

The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) control the world’s largest sustainable tuna purse seine fishery. The Nauru Agreement is an agreement between eight Pacific island countries (Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu) to cooperate in the management of their tuna fisheries.

The PNA Office (PNAO) was established in January 2010 with its headquarters in Majuro, Marshall Islands, to support the Parties in their work. A key responsibility for the PNAO is the administration of the Vessel Day Scheme (VDS) for purse seine and longline fishing in the oceanic waters of the PNA.

The PNAO is a small team of Pacific Island nationals from different Party countries with a culture rooted in the Pacific way of tolerance and regional interconnectedness – a way of doing things that is different to the way things are done in western and Asian countries. The PNAO has diplomatic status in the Marshall Islands.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the position is office based and has day-to-day responsibility for all matters relating to the administration of the VDS.
