The UK is proud to have one of the most vibrant and competitive maritime sectors in the world.
With sea trade expected to double in the next 20 years, the need for a highly skilled workforce has never been greater. The UK is committed to providing world-class seafarers, port workers, engineers, naval architects, shipbrokers, financiers, accountants, consultants, insurers and lawyers, so that – together – they can meet the long-term needs of this global sector.
The career opportunities are as broad as they are exciting.
The Naval sector offers a wide range of opportunities for scientists, engineers and technologists.
The opportunities for jobs involving the ocean are wide and varied, and preparation makes them within reach. When most people think of a career at sea, they may envision a Marine Biologist watching whales, a Captain piloting a large cargo ship, or a scuba diver studying reefs. In reality, there are hundreds of different careers at sea. On research vessel Falkor alone there are deckhands, stewards, chefs, bosons, engineers, fitters, officers, pursers, marine technicians, scientists, and more. Learn about job opportunities involving the ocean and how the crew on research vessel Falkor got their start.
The Tomorrow's Engineers programme, led by the engineering community, provides a platform for employers to work effectively with schools to inspire more young people to consider a careers in engineering.
JASON connects youth with inspiring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) role models via our live, interactive webcast series. Our role models put a human face on STEM careers, and show how STEM fundamentals students learn about in class are applied in real world situations. Each role model shares their passion for their field and their job, tells stories about the path they took to get where they are today, and provides details about their day-to-day experiences as scientists and engineers.
Marine Insight focuses on providing information on various aspects of the marine world, and tries to bring forth the marvels of the blue expanse which covers 71% of our planet.
The Maritime Industry Knowledge Centre is a programme of communication through education. It is about increasing public awareness and understanding of the maritime industry and the vital role it plays in sustaining day-to-day life around the world. It is about what the maritime industry in all its forms can offer young people and about providing worldwide access to quality in-depth information to those who know little about the industry.
However, one of the challenges in realising these ambitions lies in the very nature of the industry. It is vast, global and fragmented, made up of a diverse range of segments with their associations, members and accompanying interests.
The project is about reaching out to people who know little or nothing about the maritime industry. It is neither political nor commercial and its solid web-based structure with its responsive design for media devices from desktop to tablet to mobile phone has an enormous potential for outreach to all generations in a cost effective and efficient way.
You can access the Knowledge Centre in English, Spanish, Mandarin and shortly Greek. Several other key languages are in the pipeline.
