I have many years experience as a skipper within the diving and hydroghraphic survey industry any one of the companies I have worked for will give me an excellent reference. I work well as part of a team but equally given a task I can work on my own and see the job through. I do not mind being away from home for long periods at a time. I work well under pressure. I can be left un-supervised to get on with my work.
