  • Possess and maintain a clean UK Full Driving Licence (Manual).
  • Be agile, able to climb ladders and to work in small/confined spaces, e.g. small boat engine rooms and tank spaces etc.

Although normal hours of work are 35 per week on a day-work basis, there is a requirement for additional attendance outside this period and on occasion provide call out cover, in response to operational and emergency requirements.
