  • New construction project management experience is essential; experience in naval new construction is preferred
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • An education in naval architecture or marine engineering; other engineering disciplines; consideration will be given to a combination of maritime training and seagoing experience


Due to the security requirements for the shipyard and project, only candidates who can obtain the necessary governmental security and Controlled Goods clearances will be considered.
