Job's in the South

I was wondering if any RIBnetters are able to help me out here, even just some advice,guidance, hints and tips would be great.

I am in need of a new job. The job I am currently doing is only a 6 month contract with no possibility of it being extended as I am only covering someone who is on unpaid leave. Although there are a few months left I feel there is no harm in getting organised for the future.

I currently work for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, whom I'm sure you have all heard of! I work in the Seafarer Training and Certification Branch which simply means we process applications and issue Certificates of Competency's for Merchant Navy seafarers as well as yachties and fishermen!

Before this I was a student at Southampton Institute, now called Southampton Solent University and I successfully completed a BSc Hons degree in Maritime Studies.

I do have boating experience and can windsurf (just), sail and powerboat and I am ex-RNLI crew (due to relocation to Southampton).

I am ideally looking for a job in Southampton but I don't have a problem with having to travel to Bournemouth/Portsmouth/ I.O.W. I don't demand any great salary, i doubt it could be much worse than at the moment!!

So if anyone has any information regarding job vacancies within the Maritime Industry or closely related, I would be grateful to hear of them. Not only vacancies but also Job Agencies, websites, that sort of thing that would be useful, I would be most appreciative.

Thanks

G.

Good luck with your search, I am pretty tired a the moment but I'll sniff around for a few days and see if anybody has anything. You could give your CV to Gill at Drivers Dry Berthing, I don't think they have any jobs but She is well respected and connected and may well hear of something. I'll ask her to keep her eye out for you!

It might be worth fireing an e-mail off the the UKSA Careers Service. Their blurb say its only for their students but you might be able to wangle something, or they might pass you on to someone.

Even though my dealings with the Seafarers certification branch over the last 10 years have not been pleasurable I may be able to help out with some info!

Depending on what you actually want to do the British marine federation have jobs advertised on their site http://www.britishmarine.co.uk/ click on careers and jobs.

If you are looking for work afloat try http://www.crewseekers.co.uk/propage.htm

or if you are suitable ticketed up www.yachtjob.com is a good source for big yacht jobs.

Other marine agencies include

http://www.shippingjobs.com/
https://www.marine-recruitment.com

Other than that just make yourself known, go and speak to as many people as possible, it is a small industry and word gets around about jobs that are not usually advertised.

Good Luck

G, get yourself down to the RN Careers Office, sign on the dotted line and enjoy the next 6 years travelling the world. There are few over 40s on here that wouldn't quite happily swop the missus, kids and mortgage for that opportunity.

It's an idea but aving spent a week on a RN CCF course at the Royal College at Dartmouth a few years ago, I can definately say a life in the Royal Navy is not for me! It was a good week but I doubt I could have done it for much longer than that!
