Volunteer Relief Pier Worker Needed in Moaness

The MV Graemsay runs a scheduled service to Graemsay and North Hoy out of Stromness. In certain tidal conditions and poor weather, the vessel will call upon a person to be present on the pier to assist with catching berthing ropes to ensure safe berthing of the vessel.

This happens on an ad hoc basis and would require a person to be available to take a phone call, report to the pier and execute the berthing and unberthing of the vessel.

Training requirements are limited. Some nautical knowledge may be an advantage, but is not necessary. The induction includes the issue of PPE and basic procedures and will include introduction to the vessel and her crews.

The post requires an able-bodied person to access the pier in poor weather to conduct a moderately physical activity. This may not be suitable for persons under 16 years of age.
