  • Conducting electrical integrity testing on subsea equipment (including insultation resistance, TDR measurements, power measurements etc) in onshore and offshore locations.
  • Generating concise and accurate documentation with an appropriate level of information for pre and post installation and testing activities.
  • Conducting onshore or offshore site surveys prior to equipment installation.
  • Mobilising offshore at short notice, ensuring appropriate risk assessments, procedures and authorisations are undertaken and approved.
  • Interpreting condition monitoring data from client installations and producing summary status reports for clients with recommendations where necessary.
  • Working collaboratively as a key member of the wider Product and Service Delivery Team and in support of the Business Development Team to determine the optimum technical strategy to support client needs for products and services.
  • Working cross-functionally to ensure technical ‘in-field’ experience and findings are cascaded to the product owners and other Key Stakeholders.
  • Supporting client technical training presentations and product demonstrations to promote the company’s products and service offerings.
  • Delivering post-installation lessons learned presentations to the Product and Service Delivery Team and Key Stakeholders from supply chain, quality and engineering to ensure these lessons learned are considered for future opportunities.
  • Ensuring that technical product and service delivery related non-conformances and improvement initiatives are supported and actioned in a timely manner.



  • Current/valid offshore certification would be preferred.
