You will shine in this role when you have:


  • Ideally holding a higher education diploma (BTS or bachelor’s degree) in electrotechnics or equivalent, you can diagnose faults, ensure commissioning, perform electrical tests, make electrical connections, and verify the compliance of those made by anyone else.

  • You have professional experience in marine or offshore professions. Ideally, you have previously supervised a team of technicians.
