  • Interview with Northlink Ferries

    I just got a call from clyde telling me I have a second interview with Northlink on Tuesday. Just wondering if anyone has worked with them before? If so any insight into either the interview or what they are like to work with would be appreciated.

        Have a look at their corporate section, know how many ships they have, do a Google search and find out some details about their ships. When interviewers look at what you know about the company, even just an idea of their routes and ships can help. Googling the company in general is a good idea - any news articles, enthusiast websites, industry websites you can find might also be helpful.

          Then diversify and widen the net. Have a look for stuff like how many ships, routes etc...

            Northlink are a david macbrayne company so they are the same as calmac to some degree, except they run three ships on i think 2 routes both aberdeen to the northern isles if memory is right all the sailings are over night. 2 passanger ships and 1 cargo. as for the interview never had one for calmac but the induction day was very much the company patter, you may also end up working with NMM to get some propper deep sea time
            you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

              Hi Lewis,

              I've never worked for Northlink, as I myself am coming into Septembers upcoming intake, however, I went on the bridge of the Hjaltland recently, and spoke to the Captain and a few other officers. They were all very hospitable and a genuinely nice lot. I also spoke to a deck cadet who was on the bridge at the time too, and he was enjoying his cadetship with them greatly.

              I hope that's of some help to you!

              Kind Regards,
              Jack.

                They look like they have descent sized ferries. Are they near where you live? That's the main benefit of ferry companies. Is it a contract or a pernament position, if it is for the long term, make sure you would be interested in their routes, and also you'll have to pay tax on a non-foreign route that doesn't leave the UK.

                Is this for your cadetship company, or for a 3rd mate job?
                ....
