An accomplished Yacht Rigger?

We’re looking for a talented Rigger used to working with sailing yachts in the 40-100ft range to join one of the sailing world’s best known brands, supporting their fleet through commissioning and on a range of global events. With a full order book and a large global fleet, the role of Rigger will be a busy one and lean on your years of experience to ensure that customers’ yachts are performing in line with the needs of the customer.

Your role will see you involved in all aspects of rigging, from;

– Receipt of the rig at factory.

– Build of the entire rig, including specifications, lines and setup.

– Installation of rigs on-site.

– Fitting and rigging of sails and associated sail handling equipment.

– Rig set up, fine tuning.

– Snagging and troubleshooting.

– Ongoing technical support.

As an individual you’ll have gained expertise as a Rigger through a career spent working with sailing yachts. You will be au fait with the major rigging brands, able to work closely with them to optimise each rig for its intended use and to offer customers advice on sail handling and performance both during and post-delivery. The role will see you predominantly based on the UK east coast, however there will be some expectation and ability to travel to international events in a support role.

On offer is an attractive salary and a diverse role, suited to an outgoing individual with a passion for sailing performance.
