Peel Ports London Medway are looking for suitably qualified and enthusiastic individuals to fill current and future vacancies for the role of Marine Pilots covering the Medway district and Thames Estuary. Ranging from 350 mtr gas carriers to 200 mtr car carriers through to small coasters. Covering historic locks and docks (Chatham), modern oil and gas berths (Isle of Grain) and Sheerness Docks, every day is different.

You will possess an STCW II / 2 (Masters Unlimited) CoC, a valid ENG 1 (or equivalent) and, preferably, have previous Pilotage experience and/or ship handling experience. Applicants with lesser qualifications may be considered based on relevant experience.

In order to complete an intensive 6 month training period, candidates will possess determination and total commitment to learn such a busy and complex river. Motivation will come from job satisfaction, competitive salaries, living and working in the ‘Garden of England’ and that special feeling of being a Medway Pilot.

In return, we offer a structured training programme for trainees, a rapid progression for experienced or returning pilots, matched contributory pension scheme, private health cover, other benefits and generous annual leave entitlement.
