This week is an exciting week for all those involved in the Marine industry, as Saturday marked the start of #SeafarersWeek. The Marine industry is thriving and as a leading recruitment agency within the shipping market WRS are proud to be a part of it.
The UK being an ‘island nation’ we rely on ships to import around 95% of goods and we should be more aware of how much they help us come together with other countries. Every year there is a week in June dedicated to the 1.6+ million Seafarers, to recognise the work they do and promote it for those aspiring individuals.
It is great to see that numbers are on the rise again with all different ages, male and females getting involved in such a robust industry. To all the Seafarers out there we thank you for being so great at what you do. #SeafarersAwarenessWeek #Seafarersmaritimeemployment
Have you ever thought about becoming a Seafarer?
How do you think we could continue to increase the numbers of Seafarers?
