To join this developed and busy team, you will need an interest in areas such as GIS or navigation systems, as well as cartography, geography or oceanography. You will need great communication skills and the ability to learn new software and adapt to change in a fast paced environment. Full training and support will be provided to help you develop and progress.

Successful candidates will be expected to undergo a Baseline Personal Security Standard before the position begins which can take up to 6 weeks.
