Scenic Carlingford Ferry begin hiring staff ahead of first sailing in June
The Scenic Carlingford Ferry have begun hiring staff ahead of its first sailing in June.
The new cross border vehicular ferry service will link Greenore in Co Louth and Greencastle in Co Down across the iconic Carlingford Lough with marina construction now well advanced at its terminals.
The project, which has taken almost 10 years to bring to fruition, will be one of the most strategic infrastructure investments in the region.
The €9.75 million project is entirely privately financed and is being developed by Frazer Ferries Group.
Amongst the positions up for grabs are captains, diesel mechanic/crew, ticket collectors, deck hands/gate keepers, office manager/marketing assistant and seasonal onshore stewards.
Those interested in apply for the various roles are asked to send their CV and cover letter outlining the position they are applying for and why they are a suitable candidate to firstname.lastname@example.org
The 44 car vessel will take just 15 minutes to traverse what is traditionally more than a one hour car journey with multi-journey tickets to be sold for regular commuters.
The Scenic Carlingford Ferry will operate from 7am to 7.30pm from November to March and 7am to 9.30pm from April to October. It will operate hourly from Greencastle on the hour and hourly from Greenore on the half hour. Road widening works on the Greencastle Pier Road have now been completed and the piles which anchor the piers in place are being inserted at a depth of at least 18m deep. Work continues apace.
