About the role:


This is an exciting opportunity to join Lloyd’s Register’s Maritime Technical Advisory group on our journey to be the industry’s trusted advisor that improves the performance and sustainability of our customer’s business. A key part of the group is our ship performance team which provides advisory services to support client challenges associated with decarbonisation, energy efficiency technologies, efficient and sustainable ship operations, independent assurance and verification of performance and design. With the shipping industry now faced with the challenge of reducing and ultimately eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from shipping, LR’s ship performance services are in high demand and growing rapidly.


We are currently looking to recruit a Senior Digital Ship Performance Specialist with exceptional skills in naval architecture, data analysis, model-driven solutions, and field measurement. The successful candidate will provide specialist consultancy services to support LR’s rapidly growing technical advisory and ship performance business line.
