If you are a motivated technical specialist who is passionate about delivering and developing geospatial products, this is an exciting opportunity to apply your knowledge of GIS software to help produce world leading situational awareness products and services for the Royal Navy and commercial customers
 
About the UKHO
UKHO is an executive agency, sponsored by the Ministry of Defence. We work with a wide range of data partners to chart the world's oceans in order to develop and serve world leading software and data solutions to commercial shipping companies, navies and maritime organisations. Our products ensure safe navigation and global trade efficiency and support other marine activities including economic development, environmental protection, resource exploration and utilisation, scientific research and security and defence.
 
The role
The Tactical Products Team is one of several Production Teams within the UKHO’s Customer Division that are responsible for the maintenance and production of the UKHO’s extensive range of navigational and situational awareness products and services for the Royal Navy and our commercial customers. Within the Littoral and Riverine team your tasks will include: 
  • Leading on internal and external data capture tasks in production of Littoral & Riverine tactical products
  • Managing team members and verifying their work
  • Overseeing the compilation and delivery of Littoral & Riverine tactical products, including: Country Reports, Special Tactical Operational Information Charts and Hydrographic Port Assessments
  • Leading on requests for bespoke products in response to requests for information from customers
  • Leading on the development of internal production processes and design and compilation of new products in response to customer requirements

Job Requirements:

What we are looking for

You will have proven expertise in the examination and assessment of incoming source data and compilation, maintenance and verification of geospatial data and databases, with technical working knowledge of geospatial standards. Expertise in using one or more of ESRI/QGIS/CARIS GIS mapping software for compilation and data analytics is equally important, as is knowledge of remotely sensed data and its use in interpretation and analysis of the environment. You will also need an awareness of data science and machine learning techniques and how they might inform product development.
 
And in return?
 
UKHO is a great place in which to explore your career potential and offers a wealth of training and development opportunities. While our projects are career-defining, the work/life balance that we can offer you is equally exceptional. From flexitime, flexible working, an award-winning office environment, wellbeing schemes, a generous annual leave allowance, and access to MOD and Civil service discounts, the opportunities open to you here are hard to beat.

Closing date: 11:55 pm on Sunday 12th September 2021.
 
Selection for appointment to the Civil Service is on merit, on the basis of fair and open competition, as outlined in the Civil Service Commission’s Recruitment Principles.
