Our Careers at Sea Ambassadors visit schools, colleges and youth groups around the UK speaking about career pathways in the Merchant Navy. Last year, they made over 150 visits! 

Find out more here and look out for our ‘Meet our Ambassadors’ posts on social media (links below)

Keep watch for updates, information and guidance towards your own career in the Merchant Navy


What is it like on board a ship? There are a couple of ways to find out. College open days include tours of their Ship Simulator systems where cadets and seafarers train for on board experiences. Check out the photos and get a taste of what it’s like to train as a cadet or whatever role takes your interest (info below). We’ve also got some opportunities for a ship visit! Step on board yourself, stand on the deck and look out to sea and your future career training. Contact for further information!
