    2015 Maritime Deck & Engineer Cadetships

    Inco Ships Pty Ltd is a leading Australian ship management company, operating a large fleet of blue water vessels around Australia and overseas on behalf of CSL Australia.

    In 2015 we will be continuing our Cadet Program with intakes for both Deck and Engineer Officers within the CSL Australia fleet. We are looking for motivated, committed and enthusiastic individuals who are keen to establish a career within a long-established shipping company.

    This unique four year program provides a rare opportunity to be paid whilst studying at university and at sea. The successful applicants will not only receive an internationally recognised Degree, but will have access to direct entry, full-time employment at the completion of their studies. There is also additional opportunity for both local and international graduate placements! Our cadets will be provided with a salary for the duration of the program, paid accommodation whilst studying on campus, and receive mentoring by experienced professionals throughout the program.

    Applicants will need to meet the entry requirements/prerequisites set out by the University of Tasmania for the Bachelor of Applied Science (Marine Engineering) or Bachelor of Applied Science (Nautical Science) which will be conducted at the Australian Maritime College campus, Launceston, Tasmania.

    Minimum requirements for consideration are:
    •Australian Year 12 (or equivalent) with a pass in Mathematics Applied (or equivalent); and
    •Physics, Chemistry or a physical science subject; and
    •English - Australian Year 10 pass (or equivalent); and
    •A minimum ATAR of 60.

    Previous work experience or other affiliation with the maritime industry or environment is also desirable.

    Candidates will need to undertake psychometric testing, a reference check process as well as AMSA and pre-employment medicals, including drug and alcohol screening.

    Places are limited in this program, with new intakes occurring each year. Think you have what it takes to establish a career in the shipping industry? Then apply now - this is an exciting opportunity not to be missed!

    Interesting cadetship program. Unfortunately it seems to be accessible only to Australian or new Zealand nationals .

      As a Kiwi, looks rather interesting! I would apply if I wasn't set on passenger vessels!

        You should apply anyway.

        Hope for the best, plan for the worst....
        I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

          True, although I've been granted entry into the course that was my "dream" option, so I'm not applying for anything more at the moment.

          No offence to anyone, but I'm also not jumping at the bit to be moving permanently to Australia either!

              I've got to admit, you guys across the ditch certainly have the edge on that front!

                A friend of mine has an Aussie mate staying with him for a bit, who's going to come and hang out with me tomorrow to talk about cadetships. Not knowing much (anything) about the Australian system I'm doing some research in preparation, those links YM has posted are brilliant, but does anyone have any first hand experience and/or advice for a prospective Australian cadet?

                  This too would be great!

                  Another question - Is it possible for Australian Cadets to undertake their shore studies in Australian, and join a UK/Euro Company for their QSS?

                    Er mm mm mm. ... what's a QSS?
                    Trust me I'm a Chief.

                    Views expressed by me are mine and mine alone.
                    Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
                    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

                        Just found this thread, i am looking into cadetships in Australia also, thanks for the links YM. SeaSwift seem to offer an 'in-house' cadetship in Northern Queensland.. am i right? and the only other college option is AMC at Uni. of Tasmania.

                        I am based in Perth, until recently the 'Challenger' TAFE college in Fremantle offered the advanced diploma which seems to be the equivalent of the UK HND.. however, i spoke to a very helpful gentleman there who basically said due to funding cuts etc the only real option for the officer route is to enrol at AMC with sponsorship.

                        Just wanted to make sure i have this right? options for entry into the industry seem a lot more limited than in the UK. Also is anyone in a position to comment on job market for deck/eng officers once qualified?

                          Sea swift is only small vessels so it's a bit career limiting.

                          Basically you need a sponsored cadetship through AMC which as you said is quite hard to get, I know INCO ships recently advertised for cadet ships in OZ. Yes it is a lot more limited in OZ, but once your qualified especially if you have a DP endorsement there is work available and it's normally very well paid.

                          Best bet is to ring AMC and have a chat with them.

                            Cadet – 3-4 year programme
                            Deck Cadetship or Engineering Cadetship


                            CSL Australia (CSLA) is the largest shipowner in Australia. The company performs transhipment and coastal shipping of diverse bulk commodities including coal, iron ore, heavy mineral concentrates, gypsum, calcite, cement and clinker, employing self-unloading vessels to provide a fast, efficient and dust-free delivery of cargo.


                            CSL Australia is a direct employer of hundreds of seafarers and has offices in Sydney, Brisbane, and Whyalla. We are currently looking to offer a limited number of Cadetships to attain the AMSA Deck Watchkeepers or Engine Watchkeepers Certificate of Competency.


                            Deck Officers are responsible for navigation, sea safety, cargo operations and mooring procedures. Engineering Officers are responsible for the monitoring, maintenance and repair of machinery onboard a ship in addition to electrical generation and distribution.
                            Officers will have Watchkeeping responsibilities on a shift work schedule (normally 4 hours on and 8 hours off but this can vary). The work is physically demanding and will involve extended periods of time spent away from home. The environment of the engine room can be hot and dirty, involving work in confined spaces in all weathers.



                            A cadetship involves both time spent at college and time at sea gaining the required number of weeks of seatime and practical training. Your seatime will be in blocks of 10-12 weeks on rotation onboard our fleet of vessels.



                            To succeed in the cadetship you must be a self-starter who can demonstrate a real enthusiasm for the industry with excellent practical/technical abilities. You will need to be a team player and show a positive attitude and commitment.



                            After you have successfully completed the cadetship, we will endeavour to find you a permanent position in the company; however this is subject to a vacancy being available.


                            We are now accepting applications – please upload your resume and a brief cover letter identifying why you are interested in this opportunity via the Seek website.

                            Applications for these Cadetships will close on 15 February 2017.
