The work of the navigator varies, depending on the type and size of the ship. Both in port and at sea, the officer is responsible to the captain for the care of the ship, crew and cargo. Traditionally, the officer's watch is in the "4/8" system. So 4 hours of work, 8 rest, but it may happen (especially on small ships with a small number of people) that it will work in the 6/6 system.

The seagoing ship navigator officer is the most important person on the ship, right after the captain. Undoubtedly, this is a very responsible position and certainly not everyone is suitable. If you meet the standards for people working at sea and have the appropriate skills, such as the ability to manage people, quick thinking, making quick decisions, tough character and your passion is the sea and everything related to it, this is definitely a job for you.

The most exciting thing about this profession is the variety. Contrary to office work, the sea provides us with new emotions every day, loading, unloading, the variety of ports or even the navigation itself, keeping the watch, being aware of how many factors we can influence. Put simply, you are the boss.
