As the first-choice supplier of marine geospatial information to the British Navy plus many marine industries across the globe, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) is a fast-paced and innovative organisation. As such, a career UKHO isn’t just career-defining, it’s life-defining. That’s because we believe in celebrating the extensive skills of our people with a unique work/life balance, exposure to fascinating projects and the type of training and development opportunities that will ensure your future is taken care of too.  This commitment to quality training is something that we are immensely proud of – and is an adventure that we are sure you will enjoy shaping.

Taking responsibility for the management of the International Training team, you will be at the forefront of ensuring our business objectives are aligned with the pipeline of talent that is being built within our organisation. Leading the training team, you will regularly update our international cartographic training plan, ensuring that we are meeting the expected standards of competence for nautical cartographers, and thereby ensuring our accredited status. You will also develop our capacity building policies and activities, ensuring these are organised and delivered to the highest standards. Representing the UK at any International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) sub-committees, your unwavering eye for detail will prove invaluable when contributing to the Nippon Foundation CHART (Cartography, Hydrography and Related Training) Project.

To excel in this fascinating role, you will have exceptional cartographic skills including on-line compilation and assessment, with a detailed knowledge of modern hydrographic surveying requirements and practices. As such, we will expect you to have at least five years of experience of mapping and charting, with a good understanding of the current IHO S-8 Standards of Competence for Nautical Cartographers. This will include a solid grasp of how best to implement Maritime Safety Information measures and a good knowledge of the phases of the IHO Capacity Building Programme. A persuasive leader with the capacity to see the bigger picture and make sensible decisions, you will get the best out of your team with your outstanding communication and negotiation skills. You will also be a team-player, with an appreciation of the benefits of conducting Training Needs Analysis.

This is a unique opportunity to do something breath-taking with your career. Our work directly affects the Royal Navy’s ability to keep the nation safe, while it also enables global trade efficiency. Used for the purposes of commercial shipping, resource exploration, environmental protection and fishing, we ensure those at sea are able to navigate the waters and coastlines safely. As a civil service organisation with a commercial face, we are competitive, ambitious – and hugely proud of the talented people who make up our numbers. Join us today, and enjoy the wealth of opportunities and experiences that this unrivalled organisation can offer.
