Careers at Locals Seafood

Join our hardworking, passionate team! Current openings are listed below.


Are you looking for a job that has Health Insurance, Life Insurance, and Retirement Options?
Are you tired of working for a major corporation, and would rather work for a local business with a close team?
Do you love being physically active?
Do you have experience processing fish, or would you enjoy learning how?

If you answered yes to any of the above, we think you’ll enjoy working on our team as a Fish Scaler!

Becoming a Fish Scaler with us is an opportunity for someone who is passionate about bringing the freshest seafood to the triangle area. Our mission is simple, to sell North Carolina Seafood to North Carolinians. How you’d fit into our goal is by learning how to professionally scale and process fish.

When you work with us you get to be physically active, you develop a wealth of knowledge about North Carolina seafood, and you get to work alongside folks who are motivated by being prepared for the next day. Sure, it gets messy, and there are some low-tide smells, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

If this would be your first time working with fish, we’re happy to help you get your feet wet. We’re rapidly expanding and are looking for people who want to learn and grow with us! We’ll teach you everything you need to know and everything you’d like to learn about seafood.

Your schedule would look something like this:
Monday: 9a – 4p
Tuesday: 11a – 9p
Wednesday: 9a – 4p
Thursday: 11a – 9p
Friday: 9a – 6p
