The ideal candidates would probably be someone from the Royal Navy who has a strong Comms Maintainer background, however personnel from the RAF and Army are also encouraged to apply with similar technical backgrounds.

As a major part of this role will be based on RN vessels, the ability to gain at least SC Clearance is required.

As this role is field based, depending on where you live, you may be spending up to 50% of your time away from home, either in the UK or overseas and applications from individuals who are based to the major RN establishments on the south coast would be welcome.

In return they are offering a competitive salary, depending on skills and experience, you are also entitled to use of a pool vehicle or car allowance. As well as ongoing training and development on current and future systems that are in development.

In addition to salary and benefits, there are additional non- contractual items, such as overseas (£50 per day) and offshore allowances (£100 per day) and overtime hours on field visits. There is also some weekend and bank holiday working. A high level of overtime is to be expected and earnings will normally be in excess of basic salary. However, this excess is obviously not contractual and depends on the business continuing at current levels as well as the engineer being fully trained on the various technologies.
