Careers in the Maritime Sector

Responsible for enabling 95% of the UK’s global trade, maritime touches every part of our lives. Quite simply, without maritime, half the world would freeze, and half the world would starve.

 

From working at sea or in a port, to working in a City, to cleaning the oceans of plastics or designing a superyacht, maritime is big business. We add more to the economy than both rail and aviation combined. Working in maritime is exciting, rewarding and unlike any other industry. 

 

With the sector expected to double in size to $3trn by 2030, we need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in. 

 

There are lots of different routes into a career in maritime, including a university qualification or an apprenticeship. 

Why choose a career at sea?

From seeing the world to gaining a wealth of transferrable skills, there are loads of reasons why you might want to consider a career at sea.
