Have you thought about a career in the Merchant Navy?
If you like the idea of navigating ships or the responsibility of maintaining the ships engine room, a cadetship could be for you.
If you are over 17 you can apply for a higher education qualification with a Merchant Navy cadet sponsorship. You will be part of an industry where no two days are the same, with a wide range of career opportunities and progression.
You will need to register to attend our open event, please pick a time slot which is best suited for you. If on the day you can no longer make the time slot you have chosen, you will be able to attend the next talk.
