Volodymyr Zaichko

Family man and Chief Officer Volodymyr Zaichko is thrilled to have embarked on a career with V.Ships.

The 30 year-old Ukrainian enjoys life with the company after joining two years ago, and sees it as a superb way to support his wife and son.

He said: "V.Ships cares about its seafarers' safety and wellbeing, which is vital when you have responsibilities such as a family.

"It's good to know that I have security, as this is something that is very important to me.

"Of course it's easy to get caught up in the romance of travelling the world, which is great, but I need to know the company I work for is doing everything it can to prevent accidents, as its just not me who would be affected if I was hurt, but my wife and son.

"Thankfully safety is something V.Ships take very seriously, and they never stop looking to improve policies and technology, and always keep up with new legislation."
