Helming the Pilot boat or been the Pilot yourself?

Speak to your local Pilot Station first, they may not employ short term direct but may give you the name of the agency to go through?

The majority of Pilots, Pilot boat coxswains, Pilot boats all used to come under Trinity House, in the mid eighties Trinity House decided that was too costly so what happened was the local port authority bought the cutters and took over the employment of the Pilots and the coxswains or the Pilots formed there own pilotage company, Tyne pilots are employed by the Port of Tyne but Tees Pilots have there own company Tees Bay Pilots Ltd. Working as a coxswain you might work shifts or tide work, tide work is a killer because it usually means 4hrs on 8hrs off 4hrs on and be prepared to go out in some atrocious winter weather, bringing a pilot cutter alongside a ship in a North Easterly Gale in the North Sea at night is no easy task, some ports depending how big may employ you as a foy boatman as well tying the ships up and providing fresh water to the ships. I know if you go on the ABP (Associated British Ports) Website they occasionally are looking for Pilot boat coxswains, the only other thing to do is look at your target port in which you think is in reasonable commuting distance or your willing to move closer too and find out who employs the coxswains be it the local port authority or the Pilots themselves. If you need any more information just drop me a message and i'll try and get back to you good look with the job hunt.
