We are currently seeking a suitably qualified individual to take on the role of Offshore Fleet Senior Engineer (OFSE) for our offshore fleet. The position has a permanent base in Gosport, with occasional UK travel and afloat time.

In order to fulfil the responsibilities of this role, it is expected that the ideal candidate will have the following experience and skills:

- Experience as a ship’s engineer;
- Degree or appropriate MN or RN professional qualification in engineering;
- Breadth across the marine mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering disciplines.
