If anyone can offer guidance or contacts ref. combining the skills I possess with future vacancies I would be very grateful.
I don't know if you want to apply as the Safety officer onboard. They are mostly italian men, but your skills seem to be up to par. Go for it. Its a lot of responsibility, but they get a lot of respect too...
