Job Details

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the national careers programme for one of Britain’s biggest industries - the maritime sector. You will be a key member of a small but dynamic and delivery-focused team, with responsibility for driving forward a portfolio of projects including leading on a new UK-wide careers campaign and engagement with schools and other youth groups.

Teamwork and collaboration are at the heart of this role, and success will be based upon your ability to build upon the work already underway, set out clear plans to take things to the next level and encourage others to support their delivery.

Maritime UK is growing its team with colleagues based in major maritime regions across the country. Responsible for around 10% of the total UK sector, the Solent is a major national and international maritime cluster. This post will draw upon the LEP’s expertise in developing careers programmes, support activity in this major maritime region, and drive work across all parts of the country.

You will have access to leaders from across the maritime sector and will work closely with government officials to deliver truly national, all-encompassing activity that increases awareness of the maritime sector and encourages people to consider a career in maritime.

The Role

This post is co-funded by the Solent LEP and Maritime UK, and represents a unique opportunity for an individual to make a significant difference to transforming the maritime careers landscape, working closely with industry and providers to ensure that the sector secures the pipeline of talent it needs to grow and maintain the UK's position as the global maritime leader.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate a flexible approach to working and be able to interact and network with partners. As a member of a small team that makes a major contribution to the economic success of the Solent region and nationally, you will be expected to derive satisfaction from undertaking any other relevant duties that may be required over and above the below.
