The General Lighthouse Authorities of the United Kingdom and Ireland (GLA) are at the forefront in the provision of safety-critical marine aids-to-navigation. The GLA consist of Trinity House (for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar), The Northern Lighthouse Board (for Scotland and the Isle of Man) and the Commissioners of Irish Lights (for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland). GLA Research and Development (GRAD) is a crucial area for us as we drive cutting-edge projects of global significance in the marine environment comprising satellite and terrestrial radio navigation systems, alongside physical and visual signalling systems.
This role is an exciting opportunity to join our internationally-renowned GRAD team employed by Trinity House, and working on behalf of all three GLA, applying your skills and knowledge for the benefit and safety of all mariners. You will work from our Harwich office with the potential for hybrid working. There will also be some travel to GLA locations around the United Kingdom and Ireland, and some international travel.
You will lead GRAD’s radionavigation team and take responsibility for the resilient PNT theme of the GRAD project portfolio covering a range radionavigation technologies (including GNSS, augmentation, eLoran, R-Mode) and related strategy development. You will develop and maintain external relationships and collaborations nationally and internationally that help progress international standards, inform GLA strategy and support an international approach to future navigational safety developments. You will produce briefing notes and papers for stakeholder meetings and conferences, as well as representing GRAD and the GLA at these events.
You will hold a degree in engineering or physical sciences, or relevant demonstrable experience. You should have practical experience of relevant radionavigation systems, and knowledge of the system lifecycle from initial concept through development, standardisation, use and decommissioning.
Ideally, you will have experience in leading and participating in international standardisation activities and collaborative projects. You will need to be adaptable, self-assured and enthusiastic with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively (both written and orally) at all levels. Good organisation and time management skills are essential, as are well-developed IT skills. Project and team management skills are required.
