    Other Benefits: Private Health Insurance, Loss of Certificate Insurance, Redundancy and Long Service Leave

    However, above is subject to income tax (circa 35-38%) so does balance out quite somewhat. Conditions such as redundancy, sick leave, long service leave, and disciplinary processes are all in line with shore side conditions, which is very good unlike many flag of convenience ships.

    All salaries converted to GBP with exchange rate os of 1st July 2015.
