With a degree in electrical engineering and a practical understanding of maritime electrics, you’ll be confident in leading and driving a host of projects and delegating to a small team across a wide range of duties. Alongside your relevant electrical experience you’ll need to be able to work well with colleagues across the business and have the confidence to challenge and argue your case when required.
