One of the reasons SLR marine recruitment has its base in the city of Portsmouth is the accessibility and opportunities provided by HMNB Portsmouth Dockyard. We are entering a very busy period at Portsmouth on surge work, and this has opened some opportunities to work in this thriving exciting environment. The Dockyard has various vessels in port now and SLR recruitment needs resources for ongoing contracts.

Due to the level of security clearance needed, you must hold or be willing to undergo an MoD security clearance check to support your application. The information required will be five years of home addresses and three years of employment history. This is a great opportunity to obtain SC clearance if you do not already hold it. They are a great many roles within the marine sector that require security clearance therefore obtaining it can be the key to opening many of the doors within this thriving sector.
