British Marine’s Marine Careers Ambassador Programme promotes and highlights the leisure marine, small commercial and Superyacht industry as a career pathway for young people.

British Marine members have highlighted the need for attracting more young people into the industry and this scheme is designed to help encourage young people to consider a career working in leisure marine companies.

Who is the Marine Career Ambassador Programme for?

The Ambassador programme promotes marine careers to young people and those interested in a career change. Schools, youth groups or other local community groups can request an ambassador to explain and highlight the opportunities in Leisure Marine Careers.

How does the Ambassador Programme work?

A Marine Careers Ambassador from within the local industry will attend local schools, youth groups, local community groups including careers fairs as requested to explain and promote the career options available in the leisure marine industry as a whole and the options available and companies in that locality.
