These surveys might include but are not limited to seismic surveys, wind farm development and the detonation of underwater explosives.

The primary role of the marine acoustic technician is to conduct acoustic surveys through the use of passive acoustic monitoring systems (PAMS) and noise measurement systems such as the use of autonomous recording units (ARUs) during offshore and coastal activities, both within the UK but also internationally, including countries such as New Zealand, Australia and USA.

Additionally you will be required for onshore compilation and preparation of PAM and noise monitoring reports including the processing of acoustic data.

There will be the opportunity for you to develop your skills and progress within the acoustics team but also within the wider marine wildlife and environmental department if you so desire.
