Job vacancy – could you be our next Trainee Bosun?

Are you the person we are looking for?

We are on the lookout for a Trainee Bosun to join our motley crew for the 2023 season.

Starting at the beginning of February you’ll help us to get our boats ready to go sailing before joining us on our voyages to change young people’s lives.

We will teach you everything that you need to know but it will be an advantage if you have some experience out on the water (preferably not with us). It is also vital that you have empathy with young people particularly those who have faced difficulties in life.

We won’t sugar coat the fact that the job can be demanding and hard work. It also involves a number of smelly and unpleasant jobs! Therefore, we need someone willing to learn and to work hard. Many of our Bosuns go on to become Mates and Skippers both for us and other organisations.

As this is a training position minimum wage applies. An enhanced DBS check and Seafarers medical assessment will also be required for the successful applicant.

For more details, or to make an application, please email a CV and a brief outline why you want to work for us to ed@cirdantrust.org
