Training & Careers Day at Seawork

Working with Maritime UK and the Solent LEP, Seawork is set to deliver an exciting event promoting career opportunities in the commercial marine industry on the final day of Seawork, Thursday 15 June 2023.
Maritime businesses and organisations offer a range of different job opportunities and are always seeking to expand the skills base of existing and future employees. Seawork exhibitors come from all sectors of the industry and can show the huge scope of roles
available, both on the water and shore based, for people with or without qualifications.

With a focus on skills, learning and employment, the Careers and Training pavilion, open on all three days of Seawork, gives visitors the chance to explore opportunities within the commercial marine industry. Exhibitors include specialist recruitment companies, education centres and training organisations, many with apprenticeship schemes, all offering expert advice on how to start and maintain a successful maritime career. They can also offer advice on the schemes and help available to enable the young and not so young to join this attractive, multifaceted sector and get on to the commercial marine job path.

Students and young people aged between 15 and 19 from local schools, colleges, training centres and universities will be able to see first-hand what a job in the commercial marine industry could look like and gain some valuable insight on the opportunities available including the areas that most young people don’t think about such as Marine Surveying, Naval Architecture/Vessel Design & Build, Diving, Marine Civil Engineering, Engineering and Vessel operators. Seawork 2023 will also see a new Careers Trail using QR Codes.

Two dedicated Careers events, will take place in Seawork’s Conference Rooms;
Conference Room 1 will host the Careers and Training Fayre where Seawork exhibitors will be on hand to offer advice, information, literature and giveaways.
Students will get a unique chance to talk and question professionals and trainees who are currently working in the industry, getting a personal insight into the companies and the work opportunities on offer.
“Commercial Marine has Talent”, a live showcase of people working in the industry will be hosted in Conference Room 2. Speakers from across the sectors will be selected specifically to appeal to the audience and to allow the young people to actively engage in assessing whether a career in the industry is for them.
The students will then tour Seawork, speaking to exhibitors, visiting the pontoons, going onboard vessels and taking part in the Seawork video competition with an opportunity to win some great prizes.
