Job Opportunity For Zimbabweans On Cruise Ships

Many Zimbabweans are leaving the country in order to take advantage of the numerous job opportunities that have arisen on cruise ships in the Caribbean, the United States, and the United Kingdom, among other locations.

Averaging 100 locals are hired each month, claims Lungelo Siziba, director of Team Cruise Limited, a local business that has been helping Zimbabweans find jobs on cruise ships.

“We get enquiries mostly from young people across the country, especially those that graduated but are failing to get employed.

“We have managed to create relationships with various cruise ship management who alert us when there are vacancies.

“We simply direct those interested to the sites and individuals then apply for the vacancies.

“In a month, at least 100 people manage to get jobs on cruise ships,” said Siziba.

Jobs on cruise ships only need the bare minimum training.

“The advantage with cruise ship jobs is that no high qualifications are required. You can get employed on low-level jobs such as housekeeping, laundry attendant, room division attendant, waitressing, bartender, and suite attendant amongst others.

“For these jobs, one may earn from US$800 to US$1,500 depending on the ship that recruits you,” he said.

The wages are a windfall when compared to what workers in Zimbabwe’s troubled public and private sectors make, even though they may appear average by global standards.

For skilled workers like nurses, doctors, and dieticians, whose services are in high demand on British cruise ships, cruise ships have also evolved into a god-given employment hub.

The Royal Caribbean Cruises, Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland America Line, and Carnival Cruise Line are among the cruise lines with recruitment campaigns underway.

At the beginning of the month, tens of thousands of unemployed youths flocked to the Harare offices of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) to attend interviews in the hopes of landing their ideal jobs.

The business pays between $1,500 and $2,500 per month.

Due to Zimbabwe’s ongoing economic crisis, many citizens have fled the country in search of employment abroad.
