We are delighted to be working with Maritime UK and the Solent LEP again to deliver an exciting careers event on the final day of Seawork – Thursday 13th June 2024.  
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.  The commercial marine industry is an attractive, multifaceted sector which needs to maximise the promotion of its career opportunities to attract trainees and graduates.   

Seawork exhibitors come from all areas 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. They can also offer advice on the schemes and help available to enable young and not so young to get on to the commercial marine job path.  

Training & Careers Pavilion 

With a focus on skills, learning and employment, this 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.  

Careers Fair 2023

The dedicated Careers Fair at Seawork 2023 brought over 160 students from a mix of secondary schools and further education colleges from South Essex to the New Forest.  Aged between 14 and 19 these young people saw first-hand what a job in the commercial marine industry could look like and gained some valuable insight on the opportunities available.
