SUPPORT ON BOARD
Are you looking for crew members aboard the ship? How do I apply?
Which criteria do I have to fulfill, in order to become part of the Search and Rescue team?
Knowledge in the maritime field and / or sea rescue is a prerequisite condition. Due to harsh working conditions, high physical and mental resilience is also required. “Personal survival techniques” and / or “basic safety training” certificates are desirable.
For how long do you stay onboard as a team member?
Please note: Due to the current situation, where time on board might be extended due to stand-offs or the need for quarantines, it is more difficult to predict the duration of a rotation.
Normally, one rotation in the central Mediterranean lasts about three weeks. Afterwards the ship must return to a port, for a crew change for example, for up to three days. Team members are asked to stay aboard for at least two rotations (six to eight weeks) and for a maximum of three rotations (nine weeks). Due to the long training period and the high demand on board, we do not make any exception to these rules. This is in both your and our best interest.
What does the team aboard look like?
Do you also offer to join the medical team, the care team or the marine crew?
Will I receive a notification after I apply?
The number of positions available onboard is very limited and the nature of our emergency operations require a very selective process of recruitment.
As we receive many applications, please understand that we don't have the capacities to come back to every applicant individually. If we see a possibility for you to join our crew, our operational department will come back to you as soon as possible.
