Red Funnel- Ambitious, Caring, Professional.
Red Funnel is the original Isle of Wight ferry company with a history spanning over 150 years. Today, we’re a modern, integrated transport, travel and leisure company carrying over 3 million passengers and 0.8 million vehicles every year between Southampton and the Isle of Wight.
In the role of Head of Marine Support, you’ll lead the Marine Support Team in ensuring the condition and availability of the company’s vessels and shore side infrastructure. You will oversee the management of technical operations; including annual refits, technical fleet reliability and shore based maintenance teams.
Your experience will enable you to appreciate the requirements needed to deliver a busy, multi-faceted marine and shoreside operation, ensuring continual focus on both our customer experience and delivery of our operational strategy. As such, you will be an experienced marine engineer who has held a valid Certificate of Competency (minimum Class 2) with relevant sea-going experience, ideally in a senior role, and has subsequent shore-based management experience, or have significant relevant experience in a similar field. You’ll thrive in a busy and demanding environment that puts team spirit and trust at the heart of its culture, and your management style will be consistent, balanced and genuine. Experience of new build technical support is preferred.
We run a highly complex, multi-site operation, with 7 vessels currently in service and over 550 members of staff across all locations. This requires an individual who has a strong track record in working cohesively within a large operational team.
We pride ourselves on our collaborative, innovative culture which enables our colleagues to deliver an outstanding, safety conscious service.
