Dear Sir/Madam






    Dear Sir/Madam



    I am writing to you to enquire whether there are any positions within your company for a Bosun. I have been working at sea for twenty one years during which time I have amassed an excellent knowledge of ship operations and developed excellent seamanship skills. I have learned that teamwork is essential whilst working onboard and good leadership skills are required to effectively manage a team. I have obtained these leadership skills whilst working as a Deck Petty Officer.


    Having started as a Deck Petty Officer for Princess Cruises in 2002 I have learned to test and maintain all types of Fire Fighting Equipment and life Saving Appliances onboard a modern cruise ship. I have also obtained a thorough knowledge and excellent grasp of routine operations such as mooring operations, rigging gangways, boat maintenance and all other tasks a coxswain undertakes whilst onboard.


    As part of the deck fire team onboard I have attended the five day advance Fire Fighting held at War sash Maritime College. The training that I received during this course was invaluable whilst onboard the Star Princess in 2006.As Deck Petty Officer I was team leader of the Deck Fire Party and led the first team into the affected area. For six hours my team and I fought the fire and after it was extinguished, we searched for casualties.


    When the old Royal Princess was transferred into the P&O Fleet as the Artemis, I spent three months as a technical trainer for P&O Cruises. During this time I trained seven Pakistani Seaman the skills required to become effective coxswains. At the end of the three months, I selected four to become the coxswains onboard. During my time as a Second Bosun, I have discovered that I prefer to be actively involved in shipboard training. It is for this reason I seek the Bosun position and feel that working as a Bosun would fulfill this goal.


    I look forward to hearing from you in the near future,




    Yours faithfully,




    Andre Siebritz
