Professional Crew Member: Watch Officer or Cook

S.A.L.T.S. Sail and Life Training Society

Training young people, by the sea, for life

Do you have a passion for youth development, love spending time outdoors, and want to sail on board a tall ship? Join SALTS as a professional crew member!

We’re currently hiring for Watch Officer and Cook roles aboard our ships. Crew employment is full-time year-round, and our sailing season runs from March through October. We generally require a commitment to remain in a crew role for the duration of our sailing season, with occasional exceptions. All crew members provide mentorship and Christian spiritual care to the young people who sail with us. Not an experienced sailor? That’s okay—SALTS provides all the training necessary to safely operate our ships and fulfill your role!

  • Watch Officers lead a small group (a “watch”) during each SALTS trip
  • Cooks make three meals and an evening snack for everyone on board each day
