Job Description

Britannia Aggregates Limited

is seeking a

Ship Manager

to work as part of its ship management team

Working as part of a small but close-knit and professional team based in Northfleet, Kent, you will be responsible for the day-to-day marine and technical management of the company’s 5,786 dwt ‘A’ class suction dredger, MV Britannia Beaver, with the responsibility of maximising operational and financial efficiency and minimising downtime, thereby ensuring optimum commercial effectiveness within all requisite legislative boundaries.

Your key roles and responsibilities include managing the repair and maintenance budgets to ensure that spend is in line with agreed parameters and you will continually be seeking ways of reducing running costs. You will therefore be responsible for compiling docking and maintenance specifications as well as maintaining spares stock in a cost effective and efficient manner to ensure that spare parts are always available as and when required.

You will act as both the Designated Person Ashore and the Company Security Officer and must therefore have previous experience in both roles.  Appropriate training will be given if required.  And with safety absolutely paramount in the Britannia ethos, you must be able to show previous experience in the management of Health & Safety.  You will also be involved in the welfare of the crew as and when required and so must have proven abilities in man management.

You will hold a current valid STCW III/2 Chief Engineer Certificate of Competency and have previous experience in a senior sea-going rank.  A knowledge of small vessel operations is preferable and you must be able to demonstrate previous experience of shipboard maintenance management systems.  However, as indicated by your key responsibilities shown above, you must understand financial reports and be experienced in both devising and managing budgets as well as being competent in budget analysis.

An excellent communicator, both spoken and written, you must have the initiative to work independently as well as being part of the core Britannia ship management team.

The post offers a competitive salary, with pension and other benefits commensurate with such a management role.

If you are interested in this challenging but proactive role, please send your CV with a covering letter to Phil Collier at
