We are looking for
The Geodata Agency's hydrographic office has, as maritime authority, responsibility for the maritime survey and charting in the Danish, Greenlandic and Faroese waters. The office is looking for a skilled hydrographer that can work independently with complex details, see great opportunities and solutions and who has the courage to think forward.
You will help us improve the technical support for our surveyors, processing and quality assurance of maritime survey data and development of our data processes. The production of correct depth data is the foundation for the production of charts in both Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
You will be working on a number of exciting tasks, where the focus will be on handling, quality assurance and process optimization of obtained survey data. You will need to work with the daily operation of depth data in Danish, Faroese and Greenlandic waters, but you must also look into the future and keep up to date with new surveying technologies and new technology implementation. You can expect to be limited to sailing in the defense survey vessels, where you can calibrate our sea-measurement equipment, set up water level gauges and GPS and follow up on agreed processes.
Your personal skills
We expect you to have experience in data processing and a solid understanding of processes, systems and IT from an education or experience as a hydrographer or similar. You must have knowledge of geodesy - and you may have knowledge of / interest in surveying technologies as well as data processing eg. from satellites and LiDAR.
For example, your educational background may be hydrography, geodesy, geophysicist, oceanography, geography, engineering or land surveying – ideally with a navigation/surveying education and/or experience (like CAT-A).
Experience with modern surveying and international work will be an advantage, but not a requirement. However, it is a requirement that you master both oral and written English at high level.
The most important thing is that you have good energy, ability to cooperate and have the desire and potential to learn.
There are good opportunities for relevant competence development. In addition, we offer a strong, professional environment, good colleagues and an informal tone, where humor, good cooperation and mutual help are top priority.
Salary and working conditions
The terms of employment will be in accordance with the collective agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the relevant union organization, though with the opportunity for pay supplements. Your place of employment will be the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities and its ministerial institutions. Workplace will be in Aalborg.
The working hours are 37 hours per week.
We aim to have the position filled as soon as possible.
Please direct any questions to function manager Yvonne Morville Petersen, tel. (+45) 7254 5135 or Head of Division Rune Carbuhn Andersen, tel. (+45) 30 22 99 85.
Send your application, CV, copy of diploma and possibly other annexes (pdf-format) so that we have it no later than 2 September 2019. We expect to hold talks on 9. or 12. September 2019.
