Seafarers Awareness Week 2015

Posted: May 21, 2015

 

The NMCI Services division will be taking part in a “Seafarers Awareness week” which is due to take place from June 20th to 28th 2015. This year Seafarers Awareness Week is highlighting ‘Opportunities to Work at Sea’, promoting education, training and recruitment services leading to employment in the Maritime Sector / Merchant Navy – inc. container and other cargo vessels, fuel tankers, cruise ships, ferries, superyachts and workboats.

 

As part of this week long event we will be running some events at the National Maritime College of Ireland. One of the events which we will be running is “The Importance of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)”.

Another element is “Day of the seafarer”. This year the International Maritime Organization is shifting its focus to maritime education. They want people to consider a career at sea. Most people go to work in offices, factories and shops. But it’s a different picture for seafarers: an office can be a hundred thousand-ton oil tanker or a cargo ship navigating the world’s oceans with beautiful landscapes.

This year’s Day of the Seafarer campaign will show how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore. We are looking for companies to come on board and take part in a seminar at the NMCI which will see companies discuss opportunities at sea for people who are looking to access the maritime sector.

If you would be interested in partaking this event then contact our marketing team today by emailing: helena.day@nmci.ie

 

If you would be interested in attending any of these events then keep an eye out on our blog for registration in the coming days, or click on the link below to see how you can get involved.
