Ocean Careers

Ocean Careers is an event offering advice on career opportunities within the ocean technology, marine science and offshore industries. It will be held alongside the Ocean Business event in Southampton from the 14th – 16th April 2015.

Even if you haven’t studied or considered a career in this industry before, Ocean Careers will help you realise how your skills whether they are in engineering, science or mathematics can be utilised in this vast, exciting, forward thinking and extremely diverse industry.

Taking the current state of the global economy into account, it is clearly becoming harder for many graduates, newly qualified engineers and the unemployed to find work. Why not broaden your horizons and consider transferring your skills to an industry that in the last few years has seen unprecedented and continuing growth coupled with rapid development technologies applied to ocean survey and research.

You’ll be surprised at the number of exciting and challenging global career opportunities there are to choose from.
