Forth Estuary Forum

FEF is the Coastal Partnership for the Firth of Forth extending from Stirling to the North Sea. Our primary purpose is to promote sustainable use of the Forth for economic or social benefit while conserving or enhancing the natural environment and resources for future generations.

Our activities include convening stakeholders across all sectors for integrated coastal management, regional marine planning, research & knowledge dissemination to assist stakeholders and promote public awareness, plus outcome-based delivery projects.

Scotland’s East Coast Review Project

The Scottish East Coast Review brings together four Local Coastal Partnerships (LCPs) – Forth Estuary Forum plus the Tay Estuary Forum, East Grampian Coastal Partnership and Moray Firth Coastal Partnership.

Greater knowledge of the condition, the diverse pressures and associated impacts, together with economic and social activities and their effects, will enable the LCPs to maintain their unique and distinctive role supporting local, regional and national stakeholders and their common purpose of ensuring effective management of sustainable coasts and seas.

In particular the review will contribute crucial evidence required for statutory regional marine planning, provide support to local communities considering development plans for their locale under new planning provisions, and explore the potential to incorporate more citizen science.

The project is funded by the European Maritime & Fisheries Fund and the Scottish Government.

Role and responsibilities

The dedicated team of experienced Project Officers will create the public-facing digital report focusing on subject and pressure indicators to illustrate the sustainability of Scotland’s East Coast.

The initial priority is creation of descriptive and indicator-based factsheets covering all coastal/marine topics.  This involves gathering information and data from existing sources plus liaison with a broad spectrum of stakeholder organisations (government, commercial & charities) and synthesise latest knowledge and insight.  Later the focus will shift towards further consultation and dissemination activities.


Success in these roles requires education to degree level plus experience of report creation or knowledge research & dissemination activities related to coastal/marine environment or biodiversity. You will be comfortable contributing to organisation and project goals through your own work and team results.
