Maritime UK is exhibiting at Skills Cymru - Llandudno 

Career opportunities from across the UK’s shipping, ports, business services, engineering and leisure marine industries will be on show at North Wales' largest careers, jobs, skills and apprenticeship event.

Skills Cymru is held at the Venue Cymru in Llandudno. It brings young people from North Wales face-to-face with employers, training providers, colleges, universities and professional bodies. Free to attend, this event will raise aspirations, motivate and inspire the next generation using hands-on demonstrations and activities.

The UK is proud to have one of the most vibrant and competitive maritime sectors in the world – and its competitiveness is not solely down to efficient tax regimes and a stable business climate. Quite simply, the UK is the world’s maritime center because of its workforce.

Maritime UK’s presence will play host to the breadth of careers available in maritime with a variety of companies joining the stand. 

The UK maritime sector is worth £40bn and supports just under 1,000,000 jobs.

With sea trade expected to double in the next 20 years, the need for a highly skilled workforce has never been greater. The UK is committed to providing world-class seafarers, port workers, engineers, naval architects, shipbrokers, financiers, accountants, consultants, insurers and lawyers, so that – together – they can meet the long-term needs of this most global of sectors.

The international maritime community recognises the UK’s unequalled expertise, thought leadership, and world-leading innovation – and never stop looking for the brightest and best people to join the industry.

The career opportunities are as broad as they are exciting.
