Working at NOC

The Natural Environment Research Council employs around 540 people at the National Oceanography Centre sites in Southampton and Liverpool. Most of our staff are scientists, engineers and technologists who carry out world-leading research, or develop the machines and run the ships that help us understand the ocean environment.

They are supported by a range of staff working in areas as diverse as finance, HR, facilities management and communications.

Both NOC sites are embedded in university campuses and are part of dynamic learning environments where graduate students carry out research alongside some of the leading scientists in their field, for example the Graduate School of the National Oceanography Centre Southampton
