Boatswain

Centre de recrutement des Forces canadiennes - Québec

This is a Full-time position in Laval, QC posted July 23, 2018.

The Boatswain is truly “the professional sailor,” experiencing the unique adventures and challenges that come with work at sea, such as open deck surfaces and a rotating shift or watch system. Ashore, Boatswains normally work as instructors training other naval personnel. Junior Boatswains spend time working outside their occupation performing general duties such as cleaning, painting, working in the cafeteria, standing sentry duty, storing the ship, and acting as members of the Naval Boarding Party.

Boatswains are the seamanship specialists of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). They are responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of the ship’s rigging, shipboard cargo handling equipment, boats and small craft.

The range of their responsibilities and supervisory duties is wider than in most other seagoing occupations.

Their primary responsibilities are to:

• Operate and maintain shipboard equipment associated with cargo handling and inter-ship transfers of personnel, fuel, and materiel while at sea

• Operate and maintain the ship’s equipment for such tasks as anchoring, towing, launching and recovering  boats, and surface rescue operations

• Operate and navigate small craft in all waters

• Perform required tasks with ship’s rigging and lifesaving equipment

• Organize the storage, training, and use of small arms, demolitions and ammunition

• Plan, organize and conduct drill and ceremonies

• Assist and supervise deck crews in maintaining the ship and its equipment

• Coordinate watch keeping duties at sea and in harbour

Generally, the number of hours of work per week is 40 hours. However, military members can be called to work on atypical schedules according to the operational needs. This job also exists on a part-time basis with the Reserve Force, usually evenings and weekends.
