Trainee Marine Engineer


Are you passionate about the sea, fishing, and developing your career in the industry then this opportunity is not to be missed!

About this role:

Ideally you will have a MEC 6 ticket or be partway through your qualification or you may possibly be requiring sea time for completion. Alternatively may also have a trade qualification, i.e. diesel mechanic or fitter and turner, have experience in repairing and maintaining machinery or love working on vehicles and machinery as a hobby.

Trip lengths on the vessels range from five to six weeks and crew operate on a trip on, trip off rotation. The hours of work are generally shift rotations of 12 hours on and 12 hours off and all meals provided by our experienced cooks.

If this sounds like the right job for you, you have proven engineering or mechanical experience or a love of working on machinery and would enjoy working in a small close-knit team, then impress us with your positive can-do attitude, teamwork, safety focus, and the ability to follow instructions and rules. While out on the water, resilience is a life skill that is critical, as is respect for each other and the environment. Being committed to your team and tasks is imperative for the whole crew to be successful.
