What we are looking for

If you have a passion for GIS, geospatial data and thrive on working in a small, close-knit technical team, then this could be the role for you. We are looking for a candidate who is proficient in utilising Esri ArcGIS/ArcPRO to compile, manipulate, manage and present geospatial data to generate both hardcopy and digital products. Do you enjoy analysing complex geospatial data and presenting the outcomes from this analysis?  Do you have some experience of collating products using a desktop publishing software or a willingness to learn how to use the application? You will thrive on working as part of a supportive team sharing a common goal and get job satisfaction from delivering timely, quality assured, fit for purpose outcomes to meet the needs of our Defence customers. Previous experience of working with Defence, is not a prerequisite. 
 
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.
