Consider a life on the ocean wave, says Stena

[ January 19, 2022   //   ]

Stena Line has launched its first national recruitment campaign, entitled ‘A Life Less Ordinary’ to 60 vacancies on board its Irish Sea ships.  The Swedish owned operator says it needs to be prepared for expanded customer levels post-.

It highlights the unique work-life balance on offer with 50% of time spent off – for example, one week on/one week off on a short crossing such as Belfast-Cairnryan or two weeks on/two weeks off on longer crossings like Belfast-Liverpool or Rosslare-Cherbourg.

Head of onboard sales and services, Stephen Bryden says: “Whilst we appreciate that a life at sea isn’t feasible for everyone, the challenges of the last few years have shone a light on a variety of jobs and careers which have struck a chord with a lot of people.  As the largest ferry operator on the Irish Sea, we believe Stena Line can offer a number of unique opportunities to people from a variety of backgrounds and experience to take up a new challenge in a sector of the travel industry which is posed to hopefully get back to and surpass its previous level. Currently we are looking for onboard service assistants and chefs which will be supported with full training as well as free accommodation and meals on board.”
