The Merchant Navy Training Board’s (MNTB) Careers at Sea campaign is looking for support from vessel operators for its “Tidal Tuesday” initiative, taking place across the country during National Careers Week (5th – 10th March).
Tidal Tuesday (6th March) will aim to inform schools, colleges and youth groups across the UK of the opportunities at sea available to young people and the lifelong career prospects offered by the maritime industry.
Firms involved in the sector can participate the event by conducting a vessel or office tour, taking part at a local careers fair, giving a talk or simply raising awareness via social media.

In this month’s Member Profile, Chris King, Founder and Managing Director of King Marine, talks to us about the workboat training landscape, opportunities and challenges in the sector, and his longterm involvement with the NWA.
