If you want to develop your career in a rewarding, challenging and exciting industry whilst travelling the world, then a role in the Merchant Navy could be for you. The Merchant Navy refers to the UK’s commercial shipping industry which covers vessels across a wide range from cruise liners to container ships, bulk grain carriers to specialist chemical tankers. The vastness of the Merchant Navy is matched by highly diverse career opportunities which include numerous roles such as: officers (e.g. navigation, electro technical, engineering); ratings (technical support staff); hotel and catering, hospitality and client services.
Anybody wanting to work on-board any vessel of the Merchant Navy must complete compulsory training to ensure they are qualified to help deal with any maritime emergency – our STCW 95 courses are fully compliant with this requirement and can help give you a head start if you already have this qualification when speaking to a future employer in any of the merchant navy areas.
