Maintenance work in summer
Join our team of volunteers during the maintenance time
Craftsmen wanted for June & July
During the summer months, the Africa Mercy, the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, is stationed at the Las Palmas shipyard for maintenance and renovation work. During this period we are looking for several employees, so-called Project Assistants, to support our team of craftsmen in repairing and assembling interior fittings, etc.
Due to the Covid 19 crisis we are not allowed to use external volunteers for the work in the shipyard this summer. However, we will need “project assistants” again in the summer of 2021 for the maintenance work on the Africa Mercy. Do not hesitate any longer and apply!
