Second Engineer Officer

Including Civil Service pension

As the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar we deliver reliable, efficient and cost-effective aids to navigation such as lighthouses, lightvessels, buoys and radio navigation, ensuring thousands of mariners navigate their way safely around the UK’s busiest waters. Proud of our reputation afforded to us by many centuries of dedication to the nation’s maritime infrastructure, we are a forward-thinking organisation and it is our ability to meet new challenges and the changing requirements of the modern mariner that keeps us relevant and effective.

We are currently seeking a Second Engineer Officer for this unique role within an equally unique organisation.  As part of a small technical team, you’ll work in high quality environments, on a range of our ships, operating 3 weeks on duty, followed by 3 weeks free from duty.  You can look forward to plenty of variety – including the chance to help us maintain Aids to Navigation, so you must be keen to build your knowledge and skills as you shape the role around your own aspirations.  The ability to quickly get to grips with new technology is also important. In return, you can look forward to excellent career progression opportunities, both on and off shore, with appropriate training provided.

As well as supervising routine maintenance and survey schedules for main diesel engines, you will oversee a range of machinery maintenance and repair. Holding a Chief Engineers Certificate of Competency (III/3), no Limitations or Second Engineers Certificate of Competency (III/2) no limitations with Chief Engineers endorsement for <6000kw Coastal, you will have a thorough knowledge of diesel electric propulsion systems and be electrically biased.
