Sail Training Mate based for Duet

The Cirdan Sailing Trust has been operating for 35 years providing young people, in particular those who are disadvantaged in some way, with the opportunity to develop life skills through the challenge and adventure of life at sea.

We have a vacancy for a Mate to be based aboard our vessel Duet, sailing from the East and South Coasts for coastal and cross Channel voyages.

This position would suit someone who has substantial sailing experience and is ready for progression. Requirements are a minimum of RYA Yachtmaster and an ENG1 / ML5 medical certificate. Experience of large sailing vessels is an advantage as is experience of working or volunteering with youth organisations eg Scouts, DofE etc. Power boat level 2 is desirable. The successful candidates will be subject to DBS clearance.

This is a paid position with scheduled leave periods plus a contribution towards subsistence and leave travel. The contract is seasonal starting in February and ending early November.

Interviews will take place early in the New Year at the Trust’s office in Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex.
