Fleet - Ship Based

Job reference: FSB-M(B-006254

Location: Fleet - Ship Based

Closing date: 30/10/2020

Employment type: Perm - Full Time

Department: Medical (Ship based)

Being a Doctor on board one of our Cunard or P&O luxury cruise ships means far more than treating sea sickness and sun burn. We believe that holidays are one of life’s great pleasures, and when someone feels unwell, we do everything we can to get them feeling fit, happy and reassured as quickly as possible. As a crew Doctor you will be looking after all of your colleagues and promoting health programmes across the ship. This is a unique medical environment, combining the challenges of remote medicine with a varied caseload and real autonomy.  Every day is different and every cruise offers a new experience.

You’ll feel part of something, working alongside passionate people from all walks of life, in a tight-knit and hugely professional crew. You’ll uphold the highest standards of customer and medical care for prestigious brands with a great British seafaring heritage.

To join us as a Ship Doctor, you must be a fully qualified doctor with current registration with the United Kingdom GMC or appropriate Governmental regulatory body, four years post qualified. Due to the nature of remote working, we ask that you have a minimum of six months recent experience within A&E and within a Critical Care Environment. We ask that our Doctors are competent experience in airway management (intubation and conscious sedation), management of common cardiac cases and the ability to lead a cardiac arrest team and are able to reduce common fractures / dislocations. We welcome applications from Doctors in the UK and internationally, for GMC registered doctors, we will ensure you maintain your UK registration while working across the globe.

It takes great passion and real dedication to maintain our position at the top. That’s why people are at the heart of our journey delivering the highest standards to our valued customers. With support to help you reach your potential, attractive company benefits. Join us on our journey, apply now.
