Careers At Sea

Looking to volunteer

Want to inspire a new generation of seafarers and put something back into the shipping industry? If you’re working, or have worked, in the Merchant Navy, then volunteering as a Careers at Sea Ambassador could be right up your street.

This important role involves visiting schools, youth groups or other local community groups around the UK to deliver our inspirational Careers at Sea presentation. This could either be as an individual talk at a special careers event, or in a classroom setting (i.e. PSHE/Careers lessons).

We provide all the supporting resources you’ll need, from video clips, quiz questions and information about Merchant Navy careers, to education/training opportunities and entry requirements. Plus, there’s a raft of helpful extras, such as promotional brochures, pens, giveaways and posters. 

COVID-19 Update:
At present, face-to-face visit are not being offered following government guidelines. However, you can still be part of the team and get involved in our online activities, including virtual presentations and much more for youth groups and schools.

If you have a few people in your company with experience working in the Merchant Navy on board ship and you’re keen to spread the word about those career pathways together, you can sign up as a company.
We’ll provide resources, information and advice so you can volunteer as a company team. You bring the stories and we’ll help you to share them.
We’ll help you to reach your local schools, colleges and youth groups, showing more people about the maritime industry and how they can be a part of it through careers on board ship.
