Vehicle mechanic

Are you ready to make a world of difference using your trade skills?

Mechanics are vital to Mercy Ships! We operate hospital ships providing free essential surgery for people in West Africa who have no other chance of getting the help they need. While the marine team keeps us ready to sail, our amazing team of mechanics keeps us ready to roll when we arrive in port.

The Mercy Ships transport and maintenance crew maintain the ship’s 4WD fleet, and upkeep generators, compressors and power equipment for relief and assistance work in the rural areas of developing nations we serve. It’s an opportunity that will ruin you for the ordinary!

This is volunteer role has an approximately 6-month minimum commitment, and we’re taking applications now for 2021.
