Company: Lloyds Register

We are a leading international provider of classification, compliance, and consultancy services to the marine and offshore industry, helping our customers design, construct and operate their assets to the highest levels of safety and performance. We are shaping the industry’s future through the development of novel and innovative technology for the next generation of assets, while continuing to deliver solutions for our customers every day.


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 a ship performance consultant with exceptional skills in naval architecture, data analysis, modelling, and field measurement. The successful candidate will provide specialist consultancy services to support LR’s rapidly growing technical advisory and ship performance business line. With the shipping industry moving towards a decarbonised future, there is an increasing demand for our consultancy advisory services for low/zero carbon shipping technology, decarbonisation alignment and compliance, and independent in-service performance assessments of new shipping technologies. This role will support growth in this area and provide unique opportunities for career development in a rapidly changing engineering sector.


The position will be based in our Southampton Office, but flexible working arrangements will be considered. The successful candidate would need to be able to work from this office when required, and be able to visit clients in London occasionally, sometimes at short notice.

  • Knowledge of the marine industry, naval architecture, maritime energy efficiency and decarbonisation.
  • Ability to apply theoretical, analytical, and numerical skills for modelling, data interpretation, and problem classification, in order to solve complex challenges.
