- Manage the condition and audit of all assets (including relief) within your region, liaising with other Regional Technical Cells, Surveyors and Asset Planning as appropriate
- Support the Regional Engineering and Supply Lead with the management of the Regional Technical Cell (RTC), by deputising as required to provide the necessary prioritisation, planning, guidance and direction so that it operates in a safe, effective and efficient manner to ensure the technical elements of operational capability are achieved

About you

You'll be an effective team player with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and a calm approach to a busy workload. Working with both volunteers and staff, you will be a good communicator at all levels.

So, if you consider yourself to be an experienced engineer, with a passion to ensure our volunteers and staff are safely operating and maintaining our boats and equipment then please apply via the button shown.
