Isle of Man Maritime hosts the islands only dedicated maritime centric careers EXPO every year. 

Responsible for enabling 95% of the UK’s global trade and certainly a little higher for the Isle of man, maritime touches every part of our lives. Quite simply, without maritime, half the world would freeze, and half the world would starve.

From working at sea or in a port, to working in the City of Douglas, to cleaning the oceans of plastics or designing a superyacht, maritime is big business. We add more to the economy than both rail and aviation combined. Working in maritime is exciting, rewarding and unlike any other industry. 

With the sector expected to double in size to $3trn by 2030, 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. 

The Maritime sector is full of potential and below are just some of the areas. 

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

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
