“My greatest achievement is gaining confidence in my work and accomplishing tasks.”

How long have you worked at Maersk Supply Service, and what was your starting position?

I am employed through Chiltern Maritime as a cadet for Maersk Supply Service, so I have had over two years between sea and college. So far, I have had 7 months at sea on Maersk Supply Service Vessels.

What skills have you developed? 

Many! I had an engineering background, so I knew many little bits and pieces that were useful, though I didn’t exactly have many well-honed skills in the typical school setting. Personally, I think a lot of my skills have developed greatly since I have been at sea.

What is the most interesting part of your job?

It’s hard to say. All the machinery is varied, so any repairs or maintenance are always interesting, sometimes difficult but always worthwhile in the end. I think my favourite thing is taking machinery apart. There are also some small repetitive tasks, which I work on as well.

What has been your greatest achievement in Maersk Supply Service?

Gaining confidence. I’ve gotten to a point where if I am given a job to do, I know that even if it is completely new to me, I have the means to figure it out between reading the manual and my own experience with other tasks.

What are your goals for the future at Maersk Supply Service?

Once I have completed my cadetship and qualified, I would like to remain with Maersk Supply Service. I want to work up to becoming a Chief Engineer, but that’s going to take a few years.
