Leadership Roles

Leadership Roles at the National Oceanography Centre

Who are we?

The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) is the UK centre of excellence for oceanographic sciences. We are a national research organisation, delivering integrated marine science and technology from the coast to the deep ocean and one of the top five scientific and research institutions of its kind in the world.

The NOC is made up of a dynamic and awesome community of staff covering a range of specialist fields, backgrounds and experience. When we say our people make the difference, we truly mean it!

We are proud to be a community where each employee adopts a crucial role in furthering our aspirations, advancing the frontiers of science through our exceptional research, and focusing on the health of the oceans and improving the world in which we live. Our work is balanced by our strong sense of purpose, values and behaviours and an unwavering commitment to a ‘one NOC’ approach.

A bright new future

We have a rich history dating back to 1949 and, having previously being part of the UK government, started a new chapter as an independent charity on 1st November 2019. 

This is an extremely exciting, yet challenging time for the NOC and our people. In supporting this new phase, we have two new leadership positions in Digital Ocean, Data and Information. These are key positions as we embrace and utilise the freedoms and flexibility that come with independence, and an amazing future. A future in which we aim to achieve our vision to be the world’s most innovative oceanographic institution.
