Just ploughing through some recruitment pages after a tip off I received yesterday and found this little gem.
English Language Requirement / Certification
English is the working language onboard all our vessels. Any applicants who do not hold a UK issued Certificate of Competence must be able to demonstrate a high level of understanding in the English language by passing the ISF Marlins English Language Test at an MCA recognised test centre. This also applies to UK CEC holders. Our requirements depend on the area of operation and flag of the vessel. Please note our requirements for each vacancy. Online tests are not accepted.
If you are unable to produce an ISF English Marlins Test Certificate with our minimum requirements, please do not apply, your application will not be concidered.

I just had to email them and tell them they had a spelling mistake in the penultimate paragraph – I don’t suppose I will get a job with them !! Maybe it was a test – I passed with flying colours?
