Our Hiring Partners– Cunard Careers

You should never be asked to pay for your recruitment or for your job on board.  

We will never ask you to pay a recruitment fee, a placement fee or a fee for your job on board. You should only make payments that relate to legal/travel documentation required to work on board. 

There are some documents you need as a seafarer to permit you to work on board and to visit different ports; we will pay for most of these, but there are some reasonable costs you’ll need to pay for personal travel documents such as your passport. 

You should never be asked to pay for your recruitment or for your job on board. Only apply for employment either directly through this website or through one of our  approved global hiring partners below.
