The role will predominately focus on providing pilotage to shipping for the ports of Wisbech and Sutton Bridge, which handle vessels up to 120m in length and average gross tonnage of 3,000.
Following a suitable period of training and after qualifying as an authorised pilot for the Port, your primary duties will be as a marine pilot. In addition you will work closely with the marine team to assist in the management and

You should hold a Master unlimited STCW reg II/2 certificate of competency or equivalent. Knowledge of the Port Marine Safety Code and relevant statutory legislation is essential.
