Poseidon Sea Pilots Expands Its Team

Poseidon Sea Pilots is seeking forward-thinking marine pilots to join its expanding South East Queensland operation to supply pilotage services to the Port of Brisbane.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of AMS Group, Poseidon Sea Pilots, will initially deliver on a 10-year pilotage services agreement for the Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) Pilotage Area but Chair, John Sugarman said the group is determined to expand nationally over the coming years.

“AMS Group has been a global leader in providing high quality, innovative and integrated costeffective solutions for maritime services for two decades,” Mr Sugarman said.

“Amalgamating our high-tech safety systems with cutting-edge pilotage systems was a natural extension for our business.

“With the establishment of Poseidon Sea Pilots we are now enhancing and growing AMSG’s substantial workforce with the introduction of specialist maritime expertise.

“We have established a very strong management team with unparalleled pilotage knowledge, experience and proficiency and are now in the process of securing those mariners with the right skills, attitude and commitment to be part of our journey in shaping the next generation of marine pilots. Our recruitment program is focussing on those mariners that are forward-thinking and who will comfortably embrace the emerging technologies that will define their profession in the future.

“South East Queensland is a wonderful place to live and the Brisbane Pilotage Area is a busy, most of the time very beautiful, challenging and rewarding place to work.”

In addition to maintaining and developing a pilot’s existing skills, Poseidon Sea Pilots has developed a comprehensive leadership training and development academy providing new and long-term pilots the opportunity for growth.

“Naturally, a pilot’s skill is heavily weighted towards operating and managing specific systems in a dynamic environment and our own custom-built technology and leadership development will strengthen the pilot’s presence on the bridge,” Mr Sugarman said.

“The Poseidon Sea Pilot Academy will provide a sophisticated pilot training package based on the latest research in training and education for professionals that work in critical environments. Its Learning Management System (LMS) will follow and support a pilot from entry as a trainee through to retirement. It will also monitor on-water performance through technological means and ensure the robustness of the pilotage system.

“We want our team to excel in all areas of the pilotage environment which we hope will lead to high professional job satisfaction. All Poseidon pilots will have the opportunity to reach the highest professional standards available and have the skills and confidence to maintain ongoing leadership in their profession.”
