My duties range from conducting safety inspections on board and informing officers of any damage, issues or repair work required, to coordinating the loading and unloading of cargo and maintaining logs of nautical charts and instruments to assist the ship’s navigation. I’m also tasked with inventory management and monitoring stocks of food and drink. As you may expect, being organised and responsible are the most important qualities to do my job.

A satisfying moment for me was making a sign board for the entrance ramp that showed the maximum height limit for everyone’s safety. A simple task, but my boss really appreciated it! CLdN offers a good workplace because our safety and wellbeing is taken seriously. I know CLdN will support me with what I need to work with confidence, especially in these more worrying post-pandemic times.

In my role, every day brings a new challenge. The ship is like a home away from home, where I spend half the year. On board, I feel like I am part of a family and I want the crew to feel the same way. I want them to feel looked after. Before getting a job at sea, I always wanted to meet different people from other cultures and travel the world. My parents used to take me away for holidays and I wanted to continue that in my working life.

Having worked on cruise ships in the past, it is great to be able to bring the cruise ship experience to the cargo ship crew and passengers. I certainly encourage other women to go to sea in whatever role suits them – a diverse crew brings the best out in everyone and increases morale. Being at sea allows you to see the world and develop your own skills in a way that isn’t possible in a land-based job. On my current ship, I work with two other stewards and a deck officer who are all women and the atmosphere onboard is always happy.
