Our client provides a 24-hour lifeboat service from 238 stations and a seasonal lifeguard service on 240 beaches around the coast of the UK, ROI and the Isle of Man. The built facilities and structures upon which these essential services depend are often in challenging and exposed locations, requiring a continuous programme of inspection, maintenance, installation and development.

The Coastal Infrastructure Engineer plays an integral part in supporting our client’s lifesaving service through the safe, efficient and effective management of this unique and diverse infrastructure.

You will have significant responsibility for an operational portfolio including the requirement to accurately assess condition, specify and procure planned and emergency works, and monitor contractor performance against safety, quality and cost criteria.

- Membership of a professional body, such as the CIOB, ICE or RICS
- A degree level qualification in building construction or civil engineering (or equivalent experience)

This vacancy covers the northern part of Scotland from Lochinver to Peterhead, including the Outer Hebrides, The Shetland Islands and the Orkney Islands.

The closing date for applications is the 22nd April 2018.

Our client’s staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. They respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within their teams, and consider it essential to help them deliver a world-class lifesaving service. They are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, they also look for applicants who share their commitment to living their values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping work towards their goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024.
