Offshore steward jobs vary somewhat in responsibilities
from rig to rig. On larger operations, the stewards will typically be in the kitchen helping out the
cooks, as well being responsible for cleaning the common areas and living quarters, and managing the laundry
(mostly sheets, bed linens and blankets for the crew
On other rigs or with other offshore catering contractors, however, the Steward is very much a
leadership position. He may be the day cook as well as the steward, and
have overall responsibility for the kitchen and cleaning crew,
including paperwork and managing employees. He will manage inventory
in the galley, order food, and be in charge of the night
cook, baker, and galley hands.
One should therefore have cooking and baking experience when applying to the position of steward; for those who would
like to work in an offshore kitchen, but don't have any culinary experience, it is still quite possible to get
on as an galley hand.
