Key Role – Chief Liaison Officer

Shetland Tall Ships Ltd are currently recruiting a Chief Liaison Officer (CLO) for the Tall Ships Races event in July 2023.

The CLO is responsible for managing and co-ordinating the team of Volunteer Liaison Officers appointed to look after the needs of the ships and crew during the Tall Ships Races visit to Lerwick.

Liaison Officers are important as the interface between the visiting ships, their crews, young trainees, and the overall event with activities provided for them. Each vessel in the Tall Ships fleet will be allocated one or two Liaison Officers to look after the needs of the crew and young trainees while they are in port.

Liaison Officers will ensure the event Programme is well communicated to the participants and that they are able to access the crew activities, transport, and services they require.

This is mainly a voluntary role, though expenses will be paid and a salary budget of £4,000 has been allocated to reflect the expected number of hours for the duration of the contract. This will be paid on a PAYE basis.

The successful post holder must hold a valid passport and be available to travel between 14th and 19th July 2022.
