We are currently looking to employ a Skipper for our new vessel, David Andrews.

In addition, the successful applicant will be required to ensure that their vessel is cleaned and maintained to a high standard and that up to date bio-security records are priority.

Applicants must hold a valid certificate of competence and be able to operate a vessel up to 24 metres.  A driving licence is desirable.

We welcome enquiries from everyone and value diversity in our workforce. We are willing to consider flexible working arrangements and are an Equal Opportunities employer.
