A suitably qualified and experienced First Mate is required to work on OYT North vessels.
The Trust has operated for 14 years as an independent educational charity, working with young people from all backgrounds, offering them the opportunity for personal development through challenge and adventure under sail.
OYT North has an exciting future and they are seeking an energetic and responsive person who has the potential to develop into new roles as the trust expands.
While sailing experience up to RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal standard with a commercial endorsement is a pre-requisite it is equally important that you are able to engage with young people and volunteers - motivating them and leading by example.
The successful applicant will be required to provide a Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate.
For further information or an informal discussion about this role, please phone Steve Lennon on 016974 78511
Closing date for applications is 5pm on 19th December 2014.

2014 Refit volunteers needed. OYT South's vessel John Laing undergoes a substantial refit every year between November and March. Volunteers are needed to join the team for a minimum of a month during this time - ideally for the full four and a half months.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone planning a gap year or career break, or looking to move into the Sail Training industry: most previous OYT South core team refit volunteers have gone on to paid sailing work.
Volunteers receive food and accommodation, as well as experience in boat repairs and maintenance.
A hard-working, responsible and enthusiastic approach is essential; practical skills in any aspect of boat maintenance is an advantage.
