Receiver of Wreck

Do you have exceptional interpersonal skills? Do you have an understanding of the legislation and policy which applies in the marine environment and impacts on wreck and salvage issues? Would you relish an interesting and unusual opportunity within Government?

Do you have experience of engaging directly with external customers and/or members of the public?

If so, we are looking for a Receiver of Wreck to join us at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and we’d love to hear from you.

This is a pivotal role and historic, which provides the function through which much of Part IX of the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 is administered, operated and enforced.

As the Receiver of Wreck for the UK, you will deal with matters of wreck and salvage in UK waters and wreck brought within UK waters. You will find yourself dealing with wreck material from the Bronze Age all the way through to the operational response to current incidents involving wreck and salvage.

This is a unique, challenging and rewarding role where you will have the opportunity to engage with a wide range of stakeholders, from colleagues across the MCA to Ministers, wider Government and industry stakeholders to name just a few.
