Our Team



Rob and Jess enjoy being the volunteer managers of the Seafarers Centre. They love helping Seafarers and working with an awesome group of volunteers. They were involved in the Wellington Seafarers Centre from 2013 to 2015, then once moving back to Christchurch they took on the role of co-managers from 2015 on wards. They are both passionate about seafarers welfare and doing everything we can to assist seafarers from all over the world.
