Join us for our open event:
Tuesday 1st February

Humber Maritime College, Middleplatt Road, Immingham, DN40 1FN

Are you looking for a unique and rewarding career?

The international shipping industry, which is also known as the Merchant Navy, transports people and goods around the world.  As an island nation, shipping is very important to each of us. You can train at Humber Maritime College to join this industry as an Officer, with our Officer Cadet programme.

If you like the idea of navigating ships, taking responsibility for people, cargo and safety or the responsibility of maintaining the ships engine room, a cadetship could be for you.

Cadet programmes last around three years and are a mixture of time in college and at sea. All training is paid for you and you will receive a weekly allowance during college and sea phases – earn while you learn!

If you are over 17 you can apply for cadet sponsorship and study a higher education qualification for free.

You will be part of an industry where no two days are the same, with a wide range of career opportunities and progression.
