About the UKHO
 
UKHO is an executive agency, sponsored by the Ministry of Defence. We work with a wide range of data suppliers and partners, surveying and charting 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 purpose of this post is to assist in delivery of UKHO Geospatial Information to our Defence customers. The information we deliver enhances the situational awareness of front line commanders and planners, it improves their understanding of the operating environment, and can be critical to mission success. The successful candidate will assist in preparing the UKHO response to Requests for Information (RFIs) directed by UK Strategic Command and onward distribution. They will assist in the management, extraction, and preparation of information stored in the Maritime Foundations Database (MFDB) and Feature Database (FDB) and will coordinate the distribution of this information via networked and stand-alone systems to internal and external end users.
 
 

Job Requirements:

The successful candidate will have experience of working with and manipulating geospatial data and Geospatial Information Systems. You will be a self-motivated and organised individual who can take effective decisions based upon strict security protocols. Equally you will be an effective communicator who is able to build relationships with colleagues and customers to enable them to deliver required outcomes.
 
 
In return
