Reed: Five roles you could be doing in the shipping industry right now
Why choose the shipping industry?
Whether you have previous sailing experience, or you’re completely new to commercial shipping, the industry has such a diverse range of roles that there’s something out there to suit all skillsets.
The opportunities within the shipping industry are evolving, too. For example, once viewed as an industry that lagged behind modern technology, there are now roles available in ballast water management (ensuring the safety of water taken in as ballast in port), digital, and social media marketing.
There are also environmental roles; shipping is the least environmentally damaging form of commercial transport, and thanks to new initiatives, there has been a substantial reduction in marine pollution over the last 15 years.
Even if you’re not much of a seafarer, there are a number of shore-based roles out there which might be the perfect fit for you.
Find your perfect one here.
