Personal Statement

Being temporarily employed for the last three months as a deckhand, I was lucky to get invaluable experience during this globally uncertain time and proved to myself that the decision I made to engage in this career venture was the right one. I started my career in Investment Management and then moved on to Civil Engineering, focusing mainly on client service and satisfaction whilst dealing with subjects like wealth and investments in a very confidential way in the former. Even though I am glad I was part of these shore-based environments, I grew up being extremely active and realised that these jobs were not something that completely fitted my personality and upbringing. I am good at water sports and outdoor activities; I thrive outside and would do great at a job that allows me to do that. For this reason, and after learning about the yachting Industry, I decided to work my way towards becoming qualified to work on the yachts. I have invested time and money in doing all the necessary certificates to get started as a Junior Deckhand. With a little bit more luck, everything will still be on track to achieve my Yachtmaster Offshore by the end of this year. There is still a lot to be learned, but I am keen to continue the journey, follow direction and become part of a great crew.
