Salary £30,289.31 | Comprehensive benefits package | Permanent contract

At Harwich Haven Authority we are passionate about supporting people to achieve their full potential and we are currently looking to recruit a Marine Support Assistant Coxswain to join our Marine Operations department on a permanent contract.

You will be required to work flexibly across both our Pilot Launch and Marine Support departments, utilising your skills to ensure the smooth running of our operational services.

This is a varied role and you will have responsibility for undertaking minor repairs and maintenance tasks while also developing the ability to work on conservancy vessels and Pilot Launches as required. Whilst technical skills are an important part of this role, we are looking for someone with a can-do attitude that shares the Authority’s values and therefore full training will be offered.

You will need to be an effective communicator and should be accustomed to working effectively under pressure in challenging environments. This role also requires a high level of flexibility and a commitment to developing the skills needed to be able to operate a wide range of equipment. A full UK Driving Licence is also required.
