What are we looking for?

Newlyn Harbour, is one of the largest Fishing Ports in England and is the gateway to some of the richest fishing grounds, a port of refuge and last port of call before leaping to the Isles of Scilly. NPHC has an ambitious vision to support the fishing Industry beyond Brexit by way of improving infrastructure and upgrading facilities for both the catching and processing sectors, whilst nurturing ambition to diversify in order to incorporate marine renewables in this ever-changing world. Therefore, NPHC is looking to recruit motivated and forward-thinking people to continue our exciting, planned growth.

With Newlyn being home to one of the largest fleets within the UK, coupled with a total value of fish landed to our port at circa £25,000,000 pa, we are keen to build on our present revenue streams whilst exploiting potential growth in all marine sectors. Do you want to be part of this??
