maibMAC is hopelessly unqualified but if you’re a British national with the right creds and an enquiring mind and a commitment to safety then the UK’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch might be just the right berth for you. The selection process is, rightfully, tough, so it’s not a shoe-in.

Here are the details:

Vacancy for Inspector of Marine Accidents (Nautical)

Inspector of Marine Accidents (Nautical)

£71,584 – £78,742

Based: Southampton

Serious about marine safety?

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch contributes to safety at sea by determining the causes and circumstances of marine accidents and working with others to reduce the likelihood of repeat occurrences.

As a MAIB Inspector you will undertake investigations into accidents involving UK-registered vessels anywhere in the world, as well as accidents involving any vessels in UK territorial waters.

You will investigate marine accidents of all types, involving vessels of all kinds to determine the circumstances and causes. You will gather evidence, conduct interviews with those involved and undertake detailed analysis in order to produce clear and concise reports containing robust recommendations.

Qualified to STCW 95 A-II/2 (Deck) or with a Royal Navy equivalent, you will bring considerable seagoing experience at that level together with a proven track record of commanding a vessel. Able to draw effective conclusions using a wide range of incomplete and complex evidence and data, you will use correct English grammar and punctuation within your well-structured reports.

This is a reserved post, so restricted to UK nationals.
