My Seajacks Career

Lewis Fleming, Assistant Project Engineer 

“At Loughborough University, I studied Electronic and Electrical Engineering. After securing my B.Eng. I went on to complete a Master’s degree. I learned about Seajacks from their local recruitment program; since I have lived near Great Yarmouth all my life, working here made a lot of sense. The best bit about working at the office is the friendly atmosphere. They give you a lot of responsibility from early on, but you know that there is a supportive network behind you to help. Much like life onboard, every day generates a different challenge.”

Thomas Guppy, Master on the Leviathan 

“I have worked at Seajacks for the past 3 ½ years as a Master onboard the Leviathan, Seajacks’ second vessel.

My path to Seajacks was through the Merchant Navy. I passed my 2nd Mate’s Exam; completed my Mate’s Exam and, finally, sat my Master’s Exam. While I studied for my assessments, I worked onboard various vessels including: Semi submersible DP Rigs, Oil field construction, Ferries, tankers and general cargo. Working in the Merchant Navy has taken me everywhere; during my career I have worked in South America, Southeast Asia, and all over Europe.
As Master on the Leviathan, I am tasked with ensuring the safety of the Vessel and everyone onboard, safe navigation, and the highest level of efficiency in a risk-free environment. What attracted me to Seajacks was the versatility of the company and its potential for growth. Working here allows each team member to assume various roles; life onboard certainly keeps you on your toes.”
