Careers at Sea

There are plenty of exciting careers in the maritime sector to choose from – both on and offshore. As a Deck, Engineering or Electro-technical Officer you could be in charge of operating and managing commercial ships. While becoming a Rating would make the most of your broad seafaring skills – from navigation and engine room maintenance to Catering, Hospitality and other Onboard Services. 

For shore-based jobs in ship management and other marine industries, you’ll find incredibly varied and rewarding opportunities such as maritime law, surveying ships or training future seafarers.
