The IMarEST wants to help young and ambitious marine professionals as much as possible when they start their career. We developed the Graduate Pathway as a support programme to help these young professionals improve their employability, develop professional skills, and prepare for professional registration (e.g. Technician, Registered/Incorporated, Chartered status) over the course of five years, at a heavily discounted rate.
Join the Graduate Pathway
The Graduate Pathway is a support programme to help you improve your employability, develop your professional skills, and prepare you for professional registration (e.g. Technician, Registered/Incorporated, Chartered status) over the course of five years.
Whilst on the Graduate Pathway you will be a full Associate Member (AMIMarEST) of the Institute, but have access to exclusive learning and development content tailored to your progress on the pathway (e.g. to help you with developing your employability and professional skills).
Become Professionally Registered
Become professionally registered and get international recognition for your skills, qualifications and experience by identifying that you possess key competencies that employers value and that you meet the core standards for marine professionals worldwide.
IMarEST Echo is the Institute’s professional development platform, providing members with online and offline access to a growing collection of learning and development content and training materials, tailored to their interests and stage of their career. Find out how to start recording your CPD, and how interim professional registration can help your career.
The Marine Professional Jobs board advertises job vacancies from across the marine sector. Subscribe to the RSS feed to ensure you are alerted whenever a new vacancy is posted. The IMarEST also offers volunteering opportunities to help those still undertaking formal education to gain experience and think about the next stages in their careers.
The marine environment offers a range of varied, challenging and fascinating careers. With 70% of the earth’s surface covered by oceans, and 90% of the world’s trade carried by ship, it’s hardly surprising that there are lots of related career opportunities, especially if you’re interested in science, technology and engineering!

IMarEST run training courses in maritime hubs all over the world as well as bringing tailor-made training courses managed by industry leading and independent course lecturers to you via web based training. Courses are eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as well as giving attendees the chance to be part of IMarEST’s international online network to engage and share knowledge and information with industry peers

Stanley Gray Fellowship
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) awards a number of Stanley Gray Fellowships every year to selected candidates judged to be of outstanding potential to enable a significant piece of work to be undertaken in an approved marine engineering/science/technology subject to Doctorate (PhD) or post-Doctorate level.
David Henderson Inspiring Journeys Grant
Each year the IMarEST supports the best idea for an original, exciting, and exceptional journey, giving the winner a £5,000 grant. It is important that the project takes you somewhere fresh, different and original. Your journey needs really to matter to you, but also needs to be one that leads you to tell a story in a way that will inspire people to think about the oceans and seas, and perhaps think differently about the sea and how it is used. Find out how to apply here.
