Maritime New Zealand Maritime Officer for Port State Control

Published: 28 June 2017

Maritime Officer (Port State Control)

• Are you trained in Port State Control under the Tokyo or Paris MOU?
• Maritime NZ have positions available in Whangarei, Tauranga, Nelson and Christchurch
• Great opportunity to bring your maritime expertise to the NZ maritime sector

Maritime New Zealand is seeking to recruit Maritime Officers that are Port State Control qualified/experienced. These positions are
located in New Zealand in our Whangarei, Tauranga, Nelson and Christchurch offices.

We are looking for evidence of qualifications and experience that must include:

• Port State Control Officer (PSCO) within the Paris or Tokyo MoU; or
• Surveyor employed by an IACS member; or
• Flag state inspector or surveyor; and
• STCW certificate of competency at the management or operational level in Navigation or Engineering, or equivalent
documented seagoing experience.

The focus of the Maritime Officer role (alongside PSC) is to educate and support New Zealand’s maritime sector – this includes
monitoring compliance through effective inspections, audits, and enforcement under the Maritime Transport Act (MTA), the Health
and Safety at Work Act (HSWA), the Tokyo MoU and relevant IMO instruments.

Successful applicants can expect to prioritise their PSC work alongside the Generalist Maritime Officer duties. This includes carrying
out domestic commercial regulatory (MOSS) oversight, recreational boating safety engagement, investigations and other non-PSC

Expectations for these positions are high. You will need to lead, support and train your colleagues in a challenging and dynamic
environment while working collaboratively as part of your regional compliance team. You are also expected to engage across the
Compliance Group, the wider Maritime New Zealand organisation, and with other New Zealand government agencies and abroad.

Maritime NZ is a great place to work, offering diversity and a rewarding career opportunity. Our people are dedicated and driven to
work towards our Vision and our Values.

Please note you will need to be available to travel and work across NZ at sometimes short notice and you also must hold a current full
