  • Be involved in the maintenance of the Marine Departments Resources (Boat, watering equipment, radios and fenders, port safety equipment, etc), including maintenance of lockside, bollards, and removal of debris from dock water.
  • In the event of any pollution incidents within the dock, assist with the initial assessment of the spill, carry out an investigation and coordinate clean-up operations.
  • Responsible for the ongoing supervising, development, and training of team members. Actively assist in the training of new entrants into the development.

  • Strong leadership and communication skills to be able to influence others while maintaining efficient lines of communication.
  • Sound knowledge of Port and Marine procedures.
  • Pro-active approach to Health & Safety and the port environment.
