Current job role: Fishery manager at RH Fisheries
Previous course: Level 3 Extended Diploma in Fisheries Management, 2016
“After leaving school, going to sixth form and finding it just wasn’t for me, I knew I needed to focus on my passion for fish. Joining the Reaseheath fish management course was completely the right choice for me. I found the practical sessions, supportive tutors and working with likeminded people really helped prepare me for my current role.
“Straight after I finished my course I was offered a full time position as a Fishery Manager at RH Fisheries, a company I’d worked for part time while studying. I’ve known since the moment I left school that I wanted to be a fisheries manager at some point, but never expected to get the chance to take on such a great role so soon after completing my course.”
