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.

On behalf of the Mission to Seafarers you will work to ensure an effective port welfare service in line with the Mission’s core purpose, the provision of physical, moral and spiritual support to seafarers and their families, of all different backgrounds and nationalities.

We help seafarers who are stranded or abandoned, assist with justice cases and support their families.
