Job Description

Red Funnel is the original Isle of Wight ferry company, with a history spanning 150 years. Today, we’re a modern, integrated transport, travel and leisure company carrying over 3 million passengers and freight every year, between Southampton and the Isle of Wight.

We have an exciting opportunity for a permanent Master to join our ro-ro fleet. Reporting to one of the Senior Masters, you will be responsible for the safe operation of the ship and the effective leadership and performance of your crew. Experience of marine passenger operations is preferred, as your work will be focused on leading your crew to ensure that our vessels are at all times operated to the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Your excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills will ensure that your crew is motivated to achieve departmental goals and objectives. You will be required to work under pressure, whilst maintaining a high degree of concentration and care, and at the same time, excel at dealing with difficult customers in a polite, friendly, yet firm manner.

Your keen eye for detail will ensure that onboard maintenance and training requirements are met and that the associated records are accurately maintained. A natural ‘people person’, you will enjoy working as part of the larger Company team in order to deliver the excellent level of customer service that characterises our business.

Hours are based on 41 hours per week, working on a rostered shift system covering a 22-hour operation, over 7 days a week. Accommodation isn’t available on-board so it’s key that you reside a commutable distance from our Southampton terminals.

In return for the skills and experience you bring to the role, we offer a great work life balance for you where you get to do the job you love and still go home and see your family after every shift. We also have a fantastic working environment, the opportunity to professionally develop and a range of great benefits, all packed into a culture which cares greatly about our customers and colleagues.

If you believe that you have the professionalism, energy and enthusiasm to excel in this role then we would like to hear from you. Please ensure you submit a copy of your current CV along with your application.
