Maritime Security Officer

I have worked in a range of challenging environments and proven myself to be highly adaptable, resilient and calm under pressure. I have demonstrated my ability to be resourceful and analytical in difficult situations in order to achieve goals and objectives. I strive to complete any given task in a meticulous manner, ensuring I pay attention to detail in order to achieve the necessary objectives. I have good interpersonal skills, can integrate within any team, and develop good working relationships with people from a variety of cultures and communities.

  • Proven ability to manage, motivate and lead teams.
  • Consistent ability to work to strict timetables or deadlines and produce results whilst maintaining the highest of standards.
  • A good understanding of security procedure and protocols, including the use of lethal and non-lethal tactics and weapons.
  • A very acute awareness of situations and the ability to adapt appropriately.
  • Practical and determined approach to projects and challenges. Logical thinker and adept problem-solver.
  • Excellent verbal and written English with good attention to detail.
  • Computer literate including a good understanding of Windows, MS Word, MS Excel and MS PowerPoint.

I currently work in the Maritime Security Industry, however due to family commitments I am aiming to transfer to a land based role. Ideally I would like to be located in the UK full time, however I am willing to work anywhere in the world job dependant.
