Summary:  Responsible for the preparation of all breads, rolls, pastries, and desserts. Seeking experienced bakers and/or pastry chefs.

Accepting applications

Our bakers spend every day supplying the crew, hospital, HOPE center, and outpatient facilities with enough bread to go around. Many patients travel hours in the early morning for surgery onboard our ships. A lunchtime sandwich goes far towards putting anxious and tired stomachs to rest.  

The Baker volunteer position, part of the Food Services Department, will be located on the Africa Mercy and Global Mercy, the world's largest non-governmental hospital ships. The preferred minimum time commitment for this role is three months. We recommend all interested applicants to submit an application at least six months in advance of your target service date. Commitments longer than twelve months require successful completion of Mercy Ships On Boarding Program.

Qualifications Required:

  • Previous baking experience required
