Call me old fashioned

I'm lucky enough that I don't have to consider this work but it strikes me if you keep ridiculing the people who post job opportunites on this forum then they are going to stop doing it! Don't forget if you have a long term bridge support contract the charter company are lucky to be seeing 140 a day for a 12 hour shift so there aint a lot of money to throw at the driver.

It's also possible that the same company you are having a pop at may well be advertising next week a 200 a day Yachtmaster job which might well interest some of you guys looking for a start! I'd be buggered if I'd give a job to someone who took the piss out of me

To do this job all you need is a commercial PB2 and that wont cost you more than a monkey (500) so why shouldn't the pay be peanuts!

I think you;ll find the boat is suppled by the way

University

Hi SMT,

Have you tried to contact the University Sailing Club ?? I am sure they will have qualified instructors / safety boat drivers who would love to get paid NMW and be out doing something enjoyable.

I know I would rather be sat on a boat in the sound than stacking shelves at the local Tesco for the NMW. For a student.....100 for a w/e work is good beer money for the week ahead !!

If you need a contact, I am sure SWRibcharter can put you in touch ??

It is also worth contacting some of the outdoor pursuit training colleges as well. My club has recruited from the Portsmouth one in the past to help with the big events. They are generally young and fit and have PB1,2 intermmeadiate, VHF and First Aid. They are often willing to do the work for the experience and beer money.
