Shipping Cadet - Deck

Job Responsibilities

This wide-ranging role will make you a key part of the crew. You’ll learn to navigate the ship safely, load and unload cargo, handle the ship’s legal and commercial business, and oversee crew operations. You’ll handle physical tasks such as chipping rust off metalwork, and bridge / cargo watch keeping, which involves monitoring equipment and looking out for other vessels. You’ll also shadow more senior crew and help monitor pump operations, maintain equipment and more. In time, you’ll learn to plan the ship’s passage and learn all about anchoring, docking and cargo operations.

You will split your time between nautical college and on board one of our super tankers. Once you’re trained and qualified, you’ll have a UK foundation degree or college diploma in marine operations, a seafarer’s licence and deck watch keeping officer ‘certificate of competency’ from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

This role involves day/night shift work, so you need to be flexible in working hours.
