To support the launch of the new Maritime UK career portal, a career pack has been produced which includes opportunities in London and on the Thames.
Welcoming the launch of both resources, David Dingle CBE, Chairman of Maritime UK said:
“Careers in the maritime sector are arguably one of this country’s best-kept secrets.”
“Whether onshore or at sea, there is bound to be something for everyone – either focussed on science, technology, engineering and maths or vocational activity – and these new resources are a fantastic place to start exploring those careers.”
Championing the sector Lord Mountevans, Maritime UK Vice Chairman, recently stated: “the maritime sector encompasses not only shipping and ports, ship and boat building, manufacturing and engineering but the world-renowned lawyers, insurers and brokers of the City of London, making a significant contribution to the UK economy—an estimated £22 billion, supporting 500,000 jobs.”
