How to apply
Select the apply button to be taken into the recruitment process.
Our recruitment process involves removing all the personal information from your CV and motivation statement – our smashing application software does this automatically and puts it into a standardised format. You can make edits once it's been uploaded if you need to as some elaborate formatting on your original CV may cause information to not be transferred over.
If you would like to contact us to request an adjustment that would support you fully taking part in a recruitment process please get in touch.

What we need to see
Your CV – it would really help us if you removed all of your personal information prior to sending your CV to us. Keep your contact information in your email, but not on the documents that we’ll use for shortlisting.
A motivation statement - Tell us how your experience meets the role requirements by referring closely to both the job description and the person specification. Include examples of your work or experiences which show how you will meet the job criteria and person specification and what skills you bring which would make you successful in the role.
Your motivation statement should also let us know what inspired you to apply for this role with us – tell us what it is about our work that attracted you to the organisation and the position.
We find that stronger applications have this statement – to give yourself the best opportunity for this role, please ensure you include it. No need to write pages, one side of A4 would be perfect, two would be more than enough so try to limit yourself.
We understand that the application process can be difficult if you have a condition or disability that you live with. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to shine during your application process, so please let us know what we can do to accommodate you.
If you’re invited to an interview, you may be requested to prepare a task in advance, or take part in a group activity as part of the assessment process – we’ll let you have all the details in the invitation to interview.
The legal bit
If you’re successful, all offers of employment are conditional, subject to the following:
- we are not licensed to issue work permits so candidates are required to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK and will be required to present original documents if invited for interview.
- receipt of two references which are satisfactory to MCS
- your driving licence and insurance, if using a vehicle is an integral part of your role
Everyone can expect to be treated with consideration and respect and MCS is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all. Good working relationships release the full potential, creativity and productivity of each individual, in an atmosphere where everyone can learn and work without prejudice, discrimination, harassment or violence.
We are committed to developing a team which is reflective of our society, and which can offer insight and views that influence our work. We are particularly interested in applications from groups which are under-represented in marine, environmental and charity sectors.
