THE MARITIME INDUSTRY

The Merchant Navy is the international commercial shipping industry, transporting both cargo and people to destinations worldwide.

It is made up of a large number of shipping companies which use a variety of vessels such as cargo ships, tankers, cruise liners, passenger vessels, offshore and support vessels.

Working at sea can be adventurous and challenging. It is not your usual nine-to-five career, so to work in the industry cadets must be skilled and motivated. There are many opportunities for qualified engineers to work onshore within the maritime industry.
