W-Contractors, the leading procurement company of Mount Vema has joined the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard, in a global search for Marine Surveyors to inspect a fleet of ships that will join the floating city project.
The news comes after the government announced yesterday plans to accelerate the availability of capital, so companies can finalize deals to purchase ships before the end of the year. The government aims to negotiate contracts in just two weeks, much faster than the typical two to six months due to the complexity of the contracts.
The surveyors will deal with all types of water-based craft, from speedboats to ocean liners, including inspection and evaluation of fishing boats, and yachts on behalf of His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government and Private Owners, to make sure that the government classifications are met.
Surveyors will check the vessels against the international regulations, and in times of an accident, to be called as an expert witness as well as an investigator. Candidates must love the water, as most of the work will take place either in or on the water. Oral, written and people skills must be excellent. An inquisitive mind is necessary when investigating or examining a survey. This is not a job where every thing is the same so surveyors are expected to be adaptable.
There are various surveys that should be taken throughout the life of a ship. Beginning with the time the ship is being built, the marine surveyor will check over the ship and make sure that the standards are being followed. In addition to the through survey or examination of the ship as it is being built, there is an annual survey that should be performed on each vessel.
There are times when a special survey is requested, and the marine surveyor will conduct the survey according to why the survey was requested. This sometimes happens after a major storm and damage to the vessel is suspected. The Marine Surveyors will also inspect vessels prior to a purchase. At other times they will perform inspections as requested by the international conventions as well as domestic statues in this case within the territorial waters of the Kingdom of Mount Vema.

The Right to Self-Determination
Many believe because our community is not a member of the United Nations and is only just over a decade old, doing business with the Kingdom of Mount Vema is not possible for foreign nationals and foreign companies seeking to take advantage of the business opportunities the floating city project is creating. Nothing could be further from the truth. The territory doesn't need a United Nations membership to function as a sovereign territory, or to exercise its inalienable right for self-determination
