Closing Date 29th October 2018

First Lieutenant, x 2 TS John Jerwood / TS Jack Petchey ships based out of Gosport, PO12 2AB.

Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) is a leading maritime charity in lifelong learning and personal development and is the governing charity of the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), a civilian voluntary youth organisation engaging some 14,000 young people across 400 or so volunteer Sea Cadet Units, throughout the UK. The SCC offers a wide range of youth opportunities with the same enduring objective – to give young people the best possible head start in life through nautical adventure and fun.

"We are seeking to appoint a First Lieutenant (Second-in-Command) for TS John Jerwood and TS Jack Petchey our 24 metre power youth training vessels based in Gosport. The vessel undertakes 6 day voyages for up to 12 Cadets (aged 12 to 18) at a time, around the UK and near continent, from March to November. From December to February, the vessel undergoes winter maintenance, including a docking, usually in the Gosport area.

The post of Skipper of EXCELSIOR has come vacant for 2019 onwards.

This is a unique opportunity to become involved with one of the most authentic sea-going vessels under the Red Ensign. Her present role as a busy Sail Training and charter vessel around the Western seaboard of Europe is demanding and requires previous Sail Training experience.

As well as their regular volunteers who come to help with the winter vessel refit for a weekend or a few days at a time, Ocean Youth Trust South usually need at least a couple of long-term volunteers to join the core refit team: perhaps to do a full refit from November to March - or at least to do a period of a few weeks or months rather than the odd day here and there that most volunteers can manage.

A place on the core team is worth considering if you are between jobs or on a gap year or a career break. It could be ideal for someone considering a career in the marine industry (especially because some employers like to see evidence that candidates can offer more than just sailing skills, and the ability to keep a boat maintained and even to fix things at sea might just be enough to make the difference between you and another candidate with similar sailing experience). Quite a few past core team volunteers have moved on to paid work in the sailing industry at first mate or skipper level, where an understanding of maintenance issues is vital.

Challenge Wales is an award-winning sail training charity, based in South Wales and currently operates two vessels (72-ft Challenge Wales and 60-ft Adventure Wales) carrying out youth development activities and adult fundraising voyages. Sailing activity takes places around the Welsh coast, Ireland, South coast and further afield where sail training events and races are taking place. In the past this has included the near continent and the Baltic countries.

We are a fun, young, growing organisation bringing adventure experiences to socially diverse young people and fundraising through adult only voyages and we are looking for a fun, enthusiastic person passionate about developing young people to join our team.

Purpose of the Role:
To Skipper on both Challenge Wales (Challenge 72) and Adventure Wales (Ocean 60). The post-holder will deliver instruction and motivate young people. The majority of the role is working with young people with a small proportion being adult fundraising trips/corporate experiences. The Skipper is responsible for the overall day to day running of the vessel, its safety, SMS compliance, operational efficiency and delivering a fun and exciting voyage.
