Offshore Steward Jobs


Offshore steward jobs are a great way to break into the offshore oil industry for those without drilling or trade experience.  Job duties vary for the steward position, depending on the rig one lands on. 

On smaller operations, the Steward plays almost the same role as a Camp Boss does on the larger rigs, often serving as the day cook as well as being in charge of the housekeeping and kitchen crew. He or she will have the duty of managing the paperwork and inventories as well as managing employees, placing the food orders, and ensuring that common areas are cleaned and the laundry kept up.   

On rigs that are larger, the Offshore Steward's main responsibilities will be ensuring the common areas and living quarters are kept clean to company standards, supervising the housekeeping and laundry crews, as well as helping the cooks out in the kitchen; he won't have charge of the kitchen, however, and will report instead to the Camp Boss, who has ultimate responsibility over the entire catering department.

A Steward should have some supervisory experience and housekeeping experience, such as one gets with a similar role in a Hotel.  Additionally, the Steward should have some cooking and baking experience, or kitchen management experience.  If your goal is to get into an offshore galley job, but don't have the kind of experience listed above, consider instead getting hired on as a galley hand, and working your way up - many have done it before you.   

Offshore Steward Wages

Wages for Offshore Stewards run from 48k to 65k a year, depending on experience and the responsibilities given to you.
