Working as a Maritime Security Operative for Ambrey offers you the chance to use your military experience and skills to protect the vessels and crew as they transit through high risk areas affected by piracy and maritime crime.

With the expansion of Ambrey’s fleet – including Vessel Based Armouries (VBA’s), we provide more accommodation and opportunity to operate offshore than many other competitors.



How long would I be deployed for?

We typically deploy you for three to six months, during which time you will work on a number of projects and different vessels.

Are there opportunities for training?

Ongoing personal development is important to us, so training is built in to your schedule while you are deployed, be it for team leadership, weapons handling, or simply to refresh your knowledge on our Standard Operating Procedures or Weapons Handling Tests.

Where would I stay while I’m deployed?

Down time is on our transfer vessels or in one of our villas in Comoros or Galle. All travel and accommodation while you are deployed is looked after by our team.

What are the career prospects?

We strongly believe in encouraging and supporting you to progress in your career with us. All guards are performance reviewed at the end of each transit so we can identify your talents and reward them. We also encourage your interest in promotion to more senior positions like Team Leader, Vessel Manager, or Armourer, and provide training to support your ambitions.

Do you have a drug and alcohol policy?

We operate a zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy, which includes travel time. We are committed to testing 10o% of all personnel each year. You will be regularly, randomly tested while staying on transfer vessels or in our Comoros and Galle villas, or by one of our roaming Senior Team Leaders.

Is there a uniform?

Yes. Our guards are provided with Ambrey t-shirts while they are deployed, and you will also wear full HSE PPE (as detailed on your Ambrey training courses) to ensure your safety.
