Ocean Youth Trust South - Core Refit Team x 2

Ocean Youth Trust South have 2 spaces on their Core Refit Team

Due to 2 of their volunteers successfully gaining employment in the Sail Training industry, they now have 2 spaces within their Core Refit Team. These vacancies are ideal for anyone considering a career in the marine industry. Volunteers will receive food, accommodation and valuable experience in boat maintenance and repairs. Ideally volunteers must be aged 18+, there is no upper age limit. Practical skills in any aspect of boat maintenance will be an advantage but not essential. Core team volunteers should be hard-working, responsible and enthusiastic. The team all live together in a rented refit house and it is vital that volunteers are also prepared to take responsibility for a share of cooking and cleaning in the house. Refit volunteers often go on to become bosuns or watch leaders during the sailing season. If they were already members of sea staff, their refit experience can help them make progress and move on to more senior roles. Previous volunteers have also moved on to paid work in the sailing industry at first mate or skipper level, where an understanding of maintenance issues is imperative.
