Location: GB, BS1 6DZ

Company: Lloyds Register

Job ID: 39131
Location: Bristol : One Temple Quay 
Position Category: Client Management

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established team within the Naval Centre of Expertise in a challenging but rewarding role to manage a portfolio of vessels within a mature client relationship.

The position offers a unique chance to combine hybrid working with waterfront activity in a flexible and tailored approach and help deliver continuous improvements in an expanding and developing sector. The role could equally suit someone from an office-based customer-focused technical support background looking to develop waterfront surveying experience or someone seeking to move into a more client facing environment to augment their existing surveying skillsets.


The Naval Centre of Expertise (NCoE) Office is located in Bristol but the team is hybrid working at home with regular planned attendance in office and the successful applicant will enjoy the same opportunities for flexible working. The surveying element of the role offers a valuable opportunity to get out to actively engage at the waterfront end of the business.

The Lloyd's Register Naval sector is steadily growing; this is a good opportunity to join us in a busy but very close-knit Naval team where we work hard for each other to generate the success we enjoy together.  You must be able to achieve UK SC security clearance for this role and although there is no requirement to be based in the South-West area, you need to be able to attend in the NCoE Bristol office when required.
