British Marine will be promoting careers and education in the marine industry at Southampton International Boat Show, powered by Borrow A Boat 2019 by hosting its first ever marine careers and education stand in the entrance to the Show’s new Discovery Deck to highlight careers in the marine industry.

Available to both members of the public and exhibitors to visit, the stand will have specific advice and guidance sessions timetabled throughout the duration of the Show, with employers such as Rockley Watersports, Marine Resources and Sunseeker International providing advice and promoting their vacancies, as well as local and national training providers.

In addition to promoting training and education, British Marine will also promote its member’s vacancies (including apprenticeships and graduate opportunities). If your business has upcoming opportunities and would like to promote them to a wide and varied audience, please email the Training team on by close of play on Tuesday 10 September 2019.

The stand will also be running a competition sponsored by Marine Resources and Rockley Watersports, participants will be tasked with answering questions based on the exhibitors in various parts of the Show, with the lucky winner of the competition bagging an all-expenses paid two-day beginners sailing course for them and a friend.
