Bewerbungen für Presse an Bord

Du willst als Crewmitglied die Rettung auf dem Mittelmeer durchführen?

Die IUVENTA ist wieder vor der libyschen Küste im Einsatz. Um die geplanten Missionen auch wirklich erfolgreich durchführen zu können, brauchen wir Deine Hilfe!

Wir suchen Menschen mit Berufserfahrung, die sich über das hohe Risiko der Rettungsaktionen bewusst sind. Bitte frage dich selbst, ob du dir die Situation zutraust. Aufgrund der besonderen Anforderungen sind wir gezwungen die Crew sehr sorgsam auszuwählen.

Unser Bewerbungsformular findest Du unter folgendem Link: /crew

Bei Fragen steht Dir unser Crewing-Department gerne unter crew@jugendrettet.org zur Verfügung.

Da aufgrund der internationalen Zusammensetzung der Crew und des Charakters des Einsatzes Englisch unsere Bordsprache ist, findest Du die Informationen zu den verschiedenen Positionen direkt auf Englisch.
