Working in extreme environments

From our experience we know that a professionally trained crew can work together effectively out at sea, but between the crew members there still might be different experiences in dealing with critical, unforeseen, or extreme situations we could face on our missions. Therefor, we consider it as highly important to get to know more about certain human characteristics of potential future crew members, apart from their technical skills. Please take your time to evaluate yourself in terms of your own experience in dealing with such situations. Your answers will help us to assemble a well-balanced crew for each mission.

For which mission(s) would you like to apply?

Starting in April, we will be operating our monitoring mission in regular intervals of three weeks.

For arrival and departure as well as preparation and post-processing of the missions we plan 3 days each, so that on Saturday there is a changeover day. Please let us know in which periods of time you will be available and free to join one (or more) of our 2022 missions.

Mission Dates of Arrival and Departure

Please note: Covid-19-restrictions and hygiene concept

Together with our medical partner organization Armut und Gesundheit e.V. we have developed a hygiene concept to minimalize the risk of a COVID-19-infection during our monitoring mission and to ensure the physical safety of our crew members. The concept doesn't provide for collective quarantine measures. Instead, it's mainly based on frequent tests. Nevertheless, due to the dynamic pandemic situation it's not beyond the bounds of possibility that crew members are being put under quarantine by local authorities after returning to Malta and respectively to their home countries. This could extend the total duration of a mission. Those measures are depending on what happens on the mission (Will we have physical contact with people outside our crew, e.g. refugees in distress?), but also on the latest development of Maltese COVID-19 incidence. Please play attention to those factors when you're planning your time to join our missions and keep yourself up to date about quarantine measures in your home country.
