Step aboard a ferry on Sydney Harbour and you’ll meet one or two of our 300 General Purpose Hands, or spot one of our 100 Masters up in the wheel house, but they are just a few of our 650 strong team.
There are 70 Engineers below decks running the motors, 50 Customer Service Officers helping with tickets and information and Controlling, Staff Assignment and Controlling Officers ensuring that all the 450 plus daily ferry trips run smoothly.
Then at our Balmain shipyard there are Marine Fitters, Engine Mechanics, Boilermakers, Certified Welders, Shipwrights, Electricians, Plumbers, Painters and Trades Assistants and Engineering professionals – all helping to make absolutely sure your Ferry is ship shape and Bristol fashion. As you’d expect, every single one of our team is dedicated to making your Harbour trip the best and safest it can be, but what you may not have expected is how diverse their stories and talents are.
