My name is lee and i am 42 years old . i have not worked for the last 10 years due to being a carer for my disabled son. before that worked as a warehouse manager for a number of different companies . i have reached a point in my life now where my son does not need me around to assist him so much anymore and also having a partner now who is willing to take some of the burden allowing me to try and go back to work.
i have always considered and fancied working at sea and the possibility of long periods away from home does not phase me . However i am at a complete loss as to how and where i would even start a carreer at sea. i am thinking more along the lines of working on large tankers and i do not mind what roll i was to start at on board as i am willing to put a lot of time and effort into progressing and learning to advance myself.
my motivation is second to none as you can imagine have 4 children and 1 special needs i want to now work for the last 20 -30 years of my life to ensure the future for my children is secure. yes i am 42 but i am in good physical condition and believe i am mentally strong and am very quick to learn .
i would realy appreciate any advice or even opportunities someone would have or may know of the help me get started .
