Time to join BC’s new fast-ferry company!
We’re all about taking things to the next level. Our obsession with safety and delivering an unforgettable guest experience is only matched by our passion for constant improvement. We don’t settle for the ordinary – we encourage our Crew to think outside the box, innovate and make waves.
But don’t worry, it’s not all work and no play. We believe that having fun and being engaged are key ingredients for success. That’s why we strive to create a dynamic and enjoyable work environment where every team member has a say in shaping the future of the organization.
At the helm of our operations is Master Mariner Sean Poole. With 18 years of experience working on cruise ships, drill ships and in shipyards, Sean brings an incredible amount of knowledge and skills to the Hullo crew.
He’s successfully led a fleet of 130 marine assets and spearheaded the design and construction of a state-of-the-art simulation centre – just to name a few of the amazing projects he’s worked on!
Sean’s committed to helping mariners advance their careers and currently sits on the Board of Directors at BCIT’s Alumni Association.
Working in the marine industry almost seems like fate for Sean, with four generations of mariners in his family starting with his great-grandfather.
With his outstanding contributions to the maritime industry, we’re proud to have Sean lead the crew in delivering a safe, reliable, and friendly ferry service to all guests.
We know that acquiring official sea time endorsements matter to a seafarer looking to progress in their role. Hullo is happy to offer certificates to reflect time aboard and at sea to help you qualify for applicable exams needed to make moves in your career.
No matter where you are in your career, we’re committed to helping our crew reach their full potential.
We go beyond the standard benefit package by offering our employees a robust, flexible health and lifesty’e spending account that can be used to support your personal wellness needs.
That’s in addition to 24/7 virtual access to doctors or nurse practitioners, annual employer RRSP contributions, 100% VIFC-paid premiums, and free standby travel for you and your family.
We’ve got ambitious growth plans for our company, which means we want you to hrow with us.
As we expand our fleet and add new routes beyond Nanaimo and Vancouver, you’ll have an exciting opportunity to develop your skills, advance your career and have a say in shaping the future of our organization.
We’re a dynamic, growing company proudly employing over 80 people in Nanaimo and Vancouver.
