South African Stew Needed

Looking for a South African Stewardess. We are an Egyptian flagged vessel and are based on the Red Sea in a very secure, safe bubble called El GOUNA. Besides us Safers, all the crew are Egyptian. We are not very busy, some occasional and owner charters, but will be actively looking to market some commercial charters now. The person we require would have to be a leader and highly energetic, as she would be supervising the Egyptian stews. She would have to be hard working and have as many of the attributes you offer in your courses. The position is not high paying relative to the industry norms, our current stews walk away with the equivalent of about $500 a month. For the right foreign girl we can offer about $2000 plus medical, all the usual perks and 42 paid leave days a year. Will be in Durban for a week from the 11 July. So please contact Peter & Debbie Dickens (Captain / Manager) M/y Seven Spices 010 1329 9056 / 012 0020 2635
