  • VTS operator

    I've recently qualified and have been offered a third mates position with my company (hence the anonymous posting). But I don't really fancy working at sea. I enjoyed my time away, and remain interested in the shipping industry. But for personal reasons I now wish to work ashore. I like the look of VTS and understand that as a qualified OOW I am somewhat suitable for this job.

    I was hoping someone could give me an idea about the lifestyle, working conditions etc. I know the pay will be significantly less than that which I could earn at sea.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello!

    Might be worth googling the UK VTS Association who will probably be able to point you in the right direction. They're on twitter too if you use it: @UKVTSA

        No man would go to sea if skilled enough to get himslef into prison, for a jail has more room , more honest company , and you are somewhat less likley to drown ( Dr. Samuel Johnson)
