You will be responsible for operating equipment to collect environmental samples from the water column and the seabed for onshore laboratory analysis without disturbing, damaging or contaminating samples.

The successful candidate will be required to liaise closely with key stakeholders in the business including technical, scientific and project management teams.
In the office, you will be expected to process the data, working closely with the specialist Environmental reporting team, to produce quality reports for our customers.

You should be confident about your subject and preferably have skills in species recognition, habitat mapping and awareness of international Environmental guidelines.
