Hello everyone. I was just curious if anyone knows when the next intake for either assistant steward or deck rating is? For the assistant steward job do they look primarily for people who have catering/hospitality experience? For deck rating do they look for folk that have previous experience in a manual labour type job? Also I read some where that if you have not been a resident in the U.K for the past five year's you are not eligible for recruitment. I am asking this because in 2012 I lived and worked in Holland for five months. I have held a U.K passport for at least 25 years. Should I be ok with the recruitment or am I dead in the water? Thank's Best regard's C.Morgan.
