Sea-Change Sailing Trust

Barge Mate

£1500 to £2000 per month depending on experience

Since 2007 the Sea-Change Sailing Trust has worked afloat with young people and vulnerable adults using traditional seamanship to engage them in positive activity. We need a Mate to help bring the new Blue Mermaid into service. Built to cargo ship rules, she is fitting out at Maldon. This is an opportunity to join an exciting project and develop our work with a wide variety of clients and with trainees working towards careers afloat.

A capable boatman or woman, you will be able to enthuse others with your enjoyment of heritage and engineless sail, take responsibility for running the deck, have good communication and listening skills, and be committed to the benefits of sail training.

Initially for the 2019 sailing season, this position can enable the right person to progress towards a Bargemaster qualification and a permanent role as part of our succession planning.

Interviews late January 2019.

For an informal discussion ring Richard Titchener on 07895063838 and to apply send a full CV to him at Sea-Change Sailing Trust, Downs Road Boatyard, Maldon, Essex CM9 5HG together with a handwritten covering letter explaining why you would like to join us.
