YOUR JOURNEY STARTS HERE

You can apply for one of our positions today by completing our online application form.

The form is divided into 4 short sections covering:

  • Desired position and start date
  • Personal and contact details

The form will take approx. 10 minutes to complete – and can be completed on desktop or mobile devices – and the only information you may be required to locate prior to completing the form is your academic qualifications:

Applicants require a minimum of 4 GCSEs, Standard Grades or National 5s, and these must include maths / English AND at least one science based subject.

If, however, you have completed or are currently undertaking a Marine Pre-Cadetship, this will also be accepted as substitute for the above qualifications.

The role of a seafarer is rewarding but also challenging, and the training required in order to get to that stage is no different.

We require candidates who have the tenacity for life onboard vessels ships and can face the challenges of three years of academic work combined with sea phases.

We advise all candidates to read over the various pages included within the ‘Merchant Navy Careers’ section to make sure you are clear about the career paths open to you.

Good luck!
