As a Systems Engineer Officer in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, you’ll be working  anywhere onboard from the bridge to the engine room maintaining and repairing  the complex and varied electrical equipment and systems on your ship. This includes naviga­tional aids to propulsion systems, commu­nica­tion systems to electrical  switchgear and distribution systems and PLC (Program­mable Logic Controller) control and automation systems. You’ll also be working alongside specialists in the Marine Engineering, Deck and Logistic departments and will have a key role in the ship’s  damage control and firefighting orga­nisa­tion.

This role demands intel­lig­ence, good commu­nica­tion skills and plenty of common sense. As well as being technically minded, you’ll also need to be resourceful and inventive, with the ability to solve problems in demanding conditions. During your training you’ll be developing the professional and personal qualities needed to be a Royal Fleet Auxiliary officer so you’ll need to demonstrate leadership skills as well as working effectively as part of a team.
