Female sailors

Samoa Shipping discusses work opportunities overseas for female sailors

SSS General Manager Lautimuia Afoa Uelese Vaai told Tala Fou the company received over 20 applications from women interested in working on foreign vessels.

Lautimuia said the applicants are currently working on inter-island ferries and are seeking job opportunities in foreign vessels.

He added that they are negotiating with Mediterranean Shipping Company to allow female sailors from Samoa to work on their cruise liners.

Lautimuia is also in discussions with New Zealand inter-island ferry companies.
