Maritime Careers Fair

Isle of Man Maritime hosts the Island’s only dedicated maritime-centric careers fair every year. 

Quite simply, without maritime, half the world would freeze and half the world would starve.

 Maritime touches every part of our lives being responsible for enabling over 95% of the Isle of Man’s trade and 95% of the UK’s global trade.

 Working in maritime is exciting, rewarding and unlike any other industry. It fuels world growth, encouraging international co-operation and boosts trade which improves global living standards. Maritime is big business and with the sector expected to double in size to $3trn by 2030, the opportunities and rewards are extensive and lucrative. We need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in. 

 To enable the sector to function, as well as the traditional sea-based employment opportunities, there are many shore based opportunities not requiring sea service, with many available here on the Island

Typical shore-based posts include:

  • surveying ships to check seaworthiness 
  • ports and harbour management and pilotage 
  • lecturers in colleges/universities 
  • maritime regulatory authorities 
  • ship repair and marine equipment production management 
  • marine insurance 
  • ship broking and finance 
  • ship classification 
  • maritime law and arbitration 
  • offshore exploration
  • Crewing Management 
  • Superyacht Management and Crewing

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came.” – John F. Kennedy
