|Job Description & How to Apply Below|
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is recruiting for a Medical Purser to work on its sail training vessels Lord Nelson and Tenacious. The JST is a UK registered charity that promotes the integration between able-bodied and physically disabled people.
The ethos of the JST is to ensure that everyone on board is able to play a full part in the day-to-day operation of the ship – no one on board is a passenger. All members of the permanent crew interact fully with our trainees and are expected to encourage and assist them in order to achieve our aims. Further information about the JST, its aims and the vessels can be found on the JST’s website at
Is it possible for you to be away from home for 6 – 8 weeks at a time? Are you flexible and adaptable with a cheerful and optimistic personality, a good communicator, organised with good administrational skills? Then carry on reading………………….
Your duties will include caring for the health and welfare of all crew and trainees, upkeep of all on board medical stores and equipment, supervising the cleaning of accommodation areas, some administration and even running the on board shop.
In line with the JST’s charitable aims, up to half of our trainee crew is made up of people who have physical disabilities so part of your job would be to make sure that everyone is encouraged to join in fully with all the activities on board to best of their ability.
Ideally you will have been clinically active in the last six months, be able to suture and cannulise, and have an ILS certificate as a minimum. Manual handling training, experience of working with vulnerable adults and disabled people would be an advantage, as would previous sailing experience.
A CRB check and ENG1 Seafarers Medical Examination will be required if appointed.
Applicants will be required to sail onboard in a voluntary supernumerary capacity alongside our current Medical Purser for vessel familiarisation and evaluation purposes. This is usually for a voyage of approximately 7 days in duration. This is so we can see how you work but more importantly is allows you to see us and evaluate the JST vessels and our charitable aims before any formal employment contract is made. No need for formal interviews – the best interview any seafarer can have is a week on board ship and the ‘thumbs up’ from the ‘Old Man’….
So if you would like a rewarding job that will remind you of why you started a medical career in the first place and help to make a positive difference to the life of those who sail with us – then what are you waiting for ….get in touch.
Please call : 023 8044 3113/ and ask for Jilly or Catherine if you have any questions.
