Maritime

The ocean: without it, half the world would freeze and half the world would starve.

Responsible for enabling 95% of the UK’s global trade, the maritime industry touches every part of our lives. From working at sea or in a port to working in the City of London, to cleaning the oceans of plastics or designing a superyacht, maritime is big business. The industry adds more to the economy than both rail and aviation combined. Working in maritime is exciting, rewarding, and unlike any other industry.
