We are seeking a compassionate and highly motivated individual to join our small team that offers a range of welfare services to seafarers promoting social, physical, spiritual and mental well-being.
You must be able to embrace diversity, be an effective communicator, be well informed about and proficient in the use of modern technology, flexible in your approach and able to adapt quickly in unfamiliar environments.

The successful candidate will work with the centre Manager and Voluntary Welfare Operational Team in providing a warm welcome and practical support to seafarers visiting the centre; meet with seafarers on-board their vessels, respond to any issues or needs they may have and assist with all operational tasks in running the Centre facilities and its retail services.
The Mission to Seafarers is an international Christian maritime charity. It has become one of the largest port-based welfare operators in the world working in 200 ports and 50 countries. Our frontline staff visit ships, offer hospitality, drive minibuses and engage a range of other welfare activity. Seafarers spend up to nine months away from home and the Mission offers a friendly face and a helping hand to those in port. We help seafarers who are stranded or abandoned, assist with justice cases and support their families.
The post offers flexible working, generous pension, and 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays pro rata.
