Tradies

Are you a tradie with a passion to help the vulnerable?

Many unsung heroes make the work of our hospital ships possible. Plumbers, sparkies, mechanics (and the odd chippie) daily perform vital tasks on the Mercy Ship that keep our operating theatres lit, our medical equipment fully functional, and our volunteer crew match-fit. We need you!

maritime, medical and general volunteer roles with Mercy Ships

Are you tired of the ordinary? Why not roll up your sleeves for the adventure of a lifetime with Mercy Ships, and make a real difference for people in desperate need! Every day tradies are helping the medical teams provide free essential surgery. Volunteer positions can be short-term – several weeks to a couple of months – or long-term, depending on your availability.

Medical, maritime and operational professionals, cooks, cleaners, school teachers and others can volunteer from a couple of months, to years at a time (depending on the position). Each crew member is an integral part of providing life-changing operations to children who have been ostracised, and adults who have experienced a lifetime of needless suffering.
