Fly the UK flag within the worldwide shipping industry

About us

The work of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) makes a vital difference to hundreds of people every single day. Our UK Ship Register (UKSR) directorate works alongside the MCA’s regulatory function to promote the UK flag worldwide and attract high-quality shippers to the UK register.

Our vision is to be the best maritime safety organisation in the world – and we believe that comes from taking a fresh look at our organisation. We’re creating a cohort of new, senior managers from diverse backgrounds to challenge our culture, inspire our people and drive us forward. Together we’ll build a modern, agile, faster-paced organisation.

The opportunity

Focused on enhancing and developing our commercially oriented and customer-focused delivery model, you will actively pursue new market share in ship registrations to build sustainable growth in business. This means transforming processes and people, as well as infrastructure, to meet ambitious UKSR business plan targets and deliver on wider MCA business strategies. It’s work that matters. Representing UKSR at local, national and international events, you will build productive relationships in government, the maritime industries and the international shipping community.

The person

An entrepreneurial, dynamic and highly experienced leader, you’ll be ready for the challenge of directing diverse functions in a fast-moving commercial environment. With a track-record in front-facing customer and client relations, you’ll also have expertise in managing complex organisational change. Your exceptional interpersonal skills and capabilities in stakeholder engagement mean you are confident working with senior civil servants, government ministers and representatives of overseas states. Some national and international travel will be required.

Closing date: 2 June 2019.
