Day work is temporary work on a yacht to assist permanent crewmembers in the areas required. The work could be anything from detailing the galley, cleaning cabins, detailing the engine room to assisting with laundry or a wash down. It can last anywhere from one day, to several weeks, or even a few months.
Day working offers the opportunity to learn new skills, network with other crew and build your industry experience, which will enhance your employment prospects. Day work can sometimes lead to a permanent position if there is a vacancy on board.
Our advice is to always think of day work as an all-day interview. Carryout duties given to the best of your ability, work hard, maintain a positive attitude and offer to assist in other areas such as unloading shopping and cleaning up after meal times.
