Speculative applications

We are always keen to meet outstanding individuals who can bring strength and depth to our teams and service offering. If you have experience in a marine-related discipline, and we are not currently advertising the right vacancy for your skillset, we would love to hear from you.

Our diverse client-base and service offer means that we have career opportunities in a wide range of marine disciplines, including conservation, maritime, survey, physical processes, metocean information, and data. You will be supporting the expanding blue economy through everything from habitat creation to offshore windfarms, marine planning, or post-consent monitoring.

Successful candidates will be part of a culture focussed on employee wellbeing, and that rewards colleagues beyond their basic salary.

If you are interested in working alongside industry thought-leaders to make a positive impact on the marine environment, please email your CV and a covering letter to Tracey Bowler.

Independent consultants and associates

We recognise that working full time for a single organisation is not for everyone. That’s why we work with independent consultants who contract some of their time to support our many and varied projects.

We are always keen to hear from ecological and hydrographic surveyors, metocean and process specialists and all those who have niche marine technical skills and experience.

If you are interested in working with us as an independent consultant, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
