As an Electrical Engineer, you’ll complete the day to day maintenance and servicing of all our vessels. This includes AC/DC electrical power generation and distribution system, ships alarm system, steering control system, engine and generator control system, propulsion system, motors and pumps, battery and charging system, PA/AV system, HVAC units, navigational equipment and auxiliary control circuits on-board.

The Engineering team works 12-hour shifts over 4 days/nights Monday to Sunday, so you’ll need to be flexible in your approach to work and make sure important information is shared effectively across the team.
This role means you will work across departments so you will need to be good at building strong working relationships so you become a trusted and valued member of the team.
