As support for our engine team, you are jointly responsible for the safe and stable operation of the ship. You work alternately with the Chief Engineer and other technical supporters on a dedicated watch plan. The main task during your watch is the maintenance of all relevant technical systems and machines as well as keeping them in operation. Your work may also include repairing those systems. Difficult working conditions such as swell and high temperatures in the machine room mean that this kind of work is associated with high stress, which is why good physical fitness is a prerequisite.
During the rescue operations, additional work is required, such as guiding/ operating the crane when launching the emergency boats, being on look-out, caring for guests on board, handing out water and food to guests and assisting the medical team.
You should have experience with the operation and maintenance of large machines. Ideally, you know about SKL marine engines. You are quick witted, have a keen sense of perception and can easily handle new technical processes and adapt to new procedures quickly. Your have to have good English skills – both in written and spoken form. If you have professional training as a ship mechanic or as a ship operating assistant with the required STCW certificates, you can also apply for the position of the “Chief Engineer” in the ship’s professional crew.
