Maritime Careers Map

In support of seafarers’ career development, the MNTB has created an interactive career map which provides an outline of some of the career opportunities that are available at sea and ashore. These opportunities are not exclusive or exhaustive within each sector as there are a variety of roles and job titles within each.  All profiles within the map have been provided by individuals across the maritime industry using their own experiences of being at sea and their roles ashore.

Each individual seafarer has a unique career story and we hope the map and profiles inspire you to explore different roles at sea and in the wider maritime industry that could play a part in your future.

Zoom in and drag the page to particular sectors and click on the boxes to see more information and profiles.

This resource is developed through the MNTB and will be updated with more profiles and roles as they develop. If you would like to volunteer your experiences for us to use, please get in touch –
