An exciting opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated individual with strong interpersonal skills to work in an international development charity which was established 160 years ago. On behalf of The Mission to Seafarers you will work to ensure an effective port welfare service in line with the Mission's core purpose: the provision of physical, moral and spiritual support to seafarers and their families, of all different backgrounds and nationalities.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is able to work flexibly, depending on port schedules, offering support to seafarers by visiting ships, managing the seafarers' centre, building friendship, offering support and responding to need as appropriate.
A full, clean driving licence is a requirement of this role. The Mission to Seafarers is an Anglican Mission. Candidates must be comfortable with the Christian ethos on which the Mission is based and be prepared to work in line with it.
Founded in 1856, and entirely funded by voluntary donations, today's Mission to Seafarers offers emergency assistance, practical support, and a friendly welcome to crews visiting 200 ports around the world. Whether caring for victims of piracy or providing a lifeline to those stranded in foreign ports, we are there for the globe's 1.5 million merchant seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs.
