ITOPF is an international, not-for-profit organisation providing the maritime industry with objective technical advice, expertise, assistance and information on effective response to oil and chemical spills in the marine environment. We are seeking a new Technical Adviser to join our small London-based team. ITOPF's work is varied and challenging. It involves giving advice world-wide on the most appropriate methods for responding to oil and chemical spills from ships, minimising their impact on economic resources and the environment, and the provision of compensation.
Candidates should possess, as a minimum, a higher degree in a scientific, engineering or related discipline and also preferably have relevant practical experience of pollution control, and/or the effects of pollution on marine resources. Fluency in a language other than English would be a distinct advantage. The successful candidate must be willing to travel extensively, often at short notice, and be able to work under pressure. Good physical fitness, strong interpersonal skills, excellent written and oral presentation abilities, and computer literacy are all vital.
Starting salary (circa. £50K) will be commensurate with experience and include a generous benefits package.
