About the role:


This is an exciting opportunity to join Lloyd’s Register’s Maritime Performance Services (LR MPS) 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 LR MPS 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 reduction and ultimately elimination of greenhouse gas emissions from shipping, LR’s ship performance services are in high demand and growing rapidly


We are currently looking to recruit an engineering consultant with exceptional skills in software development, data analysis and naval architecture. The successful candidate will develop digital products and provide specialist consultancy services to support LR’s rapidly growing advisory in ship performance and decarbonisation. With the shipping industry moving towards a decarbonised future, there is an increasing demand for data, market intelligence and advisory services for low/zero carbon shipping technology from a range of maritime stakeholders including ship owners, charterers and the finance community. LR has been addressing this demand by developing digital products using advanced ship performance models, large scale datasets such as automatic identification system (AIS) data and global weather data, data streamed from client ships and LR’s extensive in-house databases of marine assets and technologies. The successful candidate will use their skills to advance the development of these products, work with the digital team to create exciting new digital products for the maritime sector and deliver consulting projects utilising these digital tools and products.
