Sea Swift is committed to building, developing and growing a workforce of high quality employees but more importantly people; from the local area wherever possible.
Sea Swift employs more than 400 staff in our 8 depots and on our 30+ vessels strategically located throughout northern Australia. We support local communities wherever possible by hiring our workforce locally.
Sea Swift has four main streams of employment – Marine (on the vessels), Operations (in the depots), Engineering (tradespeople) and Administration. There are very few other employers (not including Government) that have the breadth of employment across remote and regional northern Australia that we do.
Sea Swift is proactive in employing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders when and wherever possible throughout our organisation and developing each of our employees skills and abilities. There are a range of initiatives Sea Swift is driving to secure for our local labour force well into the future. This includes Cadetships, Traineeships and partnerships with educational institutions that can provide Work Experience for suitable individuals.
These employment initiatives have been recognized through multiple local, regional, state, national and industry awards.
