Salary: £20,828 rising to £26,737 on completion of competency period
Location: Taunton, Somerset
Hours: Full time / Part time / Flexible
Contract: Permanent

Our GIS development posts offer an exciting opportunity to build your geospatial skills and experience within a world leading organisation, working alongside and learning from subject matter experts in fields such as geospatial data management, GIS, hydrography, cartography, oceanography and navigation.  
 
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
 
Following introductory training, you will be deployed into either:
 
An Operations Team, to support the analysis of marine geospatial data and the generation of products from GIS databases.
 
Or:
 
A Production Team, to support the delivery of navigational and situational products and services to the Mariner.
 
You will be directly involved in the flowline for the delivery of services or products for customers whose safety at sea relies on the accuracy and timeliness of the information the UK Hydrographic Office provides. Within these roles, and as you progress, you will develop a number of these analytical and geospatial skills:
  • Geospatial Data Analysis & Manipulation
  • Geospatial Data Management
  • Geospatial Data Standards and Quality
  • Cartography and Interactive mapping
  • Geospatial Tools, Software and systems
You will work within a team of approximately 10 – 12 staff of differing levels of experience and will be mentored on the job.  GIS and other bespoke software and databases are used in all roles, so you will build hands-on, practical experience.
 
Day-to-day activities include database management, using GIS based production systems to complete rules-based editing of UKHO geospatial products, data sourcing, data capture and distribution and quality checking.  Other tasks may include managing and maintaining records, archival research and job preparation.

Please note, we are currently planning cohort starts for November 2022 and January 2023 – numbers on each will be dependent on business need.
 

Job Requirements:

What we are looking for
 
You will have a real interest in building geospatial skills and experience within an organisation that is responsible for providing all users of marine/hydrographic information with the data, products and services they need to make effective decisions. 
 
If you are a supportive team player, who has great attention to detail and the ability to work at pace to meet the needs of our customers worldwide, then we would love to hear from you.
 
And in return?
 
You will gain experience of working in a modern, flexible and supportive working environment with great benefits, alongside colleagues who are passionate about what we deliver for our customers.
 
We will actively empower you to develop yourself and provide flexible working practices for a healthy work/life balance. You will also benefit from a brand-new award-winning office, with use of our on-site gym, free parking and subsidised canteen.

Closing date: 7th August 2022.
 
UKHO embraces diversity and promotes inclusion and equality of opportunity. We are a Disability Confident employer, which includes offering a guaranteed interview to candidates with disabilities, providing they meet the minimum selection criteria.
 
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.
