Our client has an opportunity for a male Chief Steward to join their very large Cayman Island Flagged charter yacht (65m+). This program is heavily crewed with 6 on the interior. The position is full time / permanent and has a rotation of 5:1.
They are looking to maintain a good, diverse group aboard and have asked that we consider candidates from all over the world. There are no special language requirements, other than native spoken English.
The yacht is very busy and used by both the owner and by charterers. They have a well-established history as a successful charter yacht, and the plan is to continue this while doing a two-season program, both Mediterranean and Caribbean.
This is a very formal yacht, with huge, over the top table settings, extensive entertaining, silver service is required. Traditionally they have not been of the "themed night" programs, but with any charter program, being ready for that sort of thing is not a bad idea.
The ideal Chief is a team player. This means working well with upper management, while at the same time, able to work hand in hand with the interior team. When questioned, the previous Chief said the best description would be somebody who is talented, humble and fun. A hard worker, happy to put in the hours to make it perfect, is not a constant talker, is constantly enthusiastic, energetic and loves to work with the rest of the team (mostly girls).
They will not be able to accept anybody who smokes or who has any tattoos that can be seen when wearing a T-Shirt and shorts, and barefoot.
Candidates will be expected to pass an in-person interview with the onboard team. There may be a meeting with the owner and/or the owner’s management team.
A history of making commitments, valid STCW Basic Training and a current ENG1 are required.
Please note - the yacht does come in and out of the US. Candidates must have no hindrances to that. UK candidates please note - you must have the B1/B2 already in hand. Other nationalities - it is helpful if you already have the visa in hand, but if you do not, they are willing to assist.
The team aboard is diverse - and the owner likes it that way. The Chief must be respectful of, and comfortable working with, crew of multiple nationalities, religions, colours, sexual orientations.
Please remember that with all positions we present, we do not share wages in either direction, but will only bring you opportunities where we believe both sides will come to a happy agreement
