Warning over huge shortfall in young people entering UK maritime industry • New report by Seafarers UK shows the vast majority of young people never consider a career in maritime industry • Research shows lack of interest may be based on careers advice at school with only 2% saying they were ever given any information about maritime jobs • The UK maritime industry directly contributes at least £11 billion a year to the economy, while supporting over 113,000 jobs • A recent global industry report forecasts a serious future shortage in the supply of future seafarers • Seafarers UK is warning of a huge shortfall, unless more is done to guide young people into the industry, which could have a worrying impact on the UK industry and economy in years to come A lack of information and guidance for young people on possible careers in the maritime industry will create a shortfall in years to come that could have a worrying impact on the industry and the UK economy. That’s according to the charity Seafarers UK that has released a report today ahead of Seafarers Awareness Week (20-26 June) which shows that the majority of young people have little or no knowledge of careers in the maritime industry. Only 2% say they have been given careers advice about the maritime industry, compared to professional services (18%), science and engineering (21%), health sector (19%), retail (14%), construction (8%), uniformed public services such as police, fire service, paramedics (13%), media (18%), catering (8%). When asked from the above list of careers, which they thought offered good prospects, only 1 in 20 picked the maritime industry. It’s perhaps not surprising that more than 70% have never considered a career at sea as one in three have never even been onboard a ship. The UK maritime industry directly contributes at least £11 billion a year to the economy, while supporting over 113,000 jobs.* Approximately 70,000 people in the UK currently work at sea+, including in the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, and Fishing Fleets. According to a recent worldwide report there is a current global shortfall of about 16,500 officers in the maritime industry, but a need for an additional 147,500 officers by 2025 to service the world merchant fleet~. Seafarers UK believes these numbers are indicative of many new job opportunities in the industry and are calling for more guidance and education on possible career options.

I'm down at Lanyon Quay on the lower stretches of the river Lagan to take a look round Belfast Barge ( MV Confiance built 1960 ) which houses Belfast's largest maritime museum. The Belfast Barge is the city's latest maritime themed visitor attraction, located beside Belfast Waterfront and minutes from the city centre. This 600 ton barge moored on the river Lagan at Lanyon Quay houses a vibrant interactive museum which tells the story of Belfast's proud maritime history. Although once the world’s biggest shipbuilding city, by the end of the twentieth century, shipbuilding in Belfast had declined to the point where the mighty Harland and Wolff, once employer of thousands of workers, consisted of little more than 100 employees and, the buildings and docks once necessary for such a huge undertaking had become redundant. Between 1999 and 2002 much of the shipyard was demolished. During this time, Lagan Boat Co. discovered that a significant archive of ships engineering plans were also inadvertently being destroyed and wanted to preserve this important archive. Lagan Legacy was set up in 2002 as the charity to undertake this important task. The plans, along with video accounts of the personal stories of those with a direct involvement with the industry, are now housed on the Belfast Barge, a 600 ton barge permanently moored at Lanyon Quay, set to become Belfast’s most popular visitor attraction. The barge houses a vibrant interactive museum, which combines touch screens, interpretive panels and interactive displays, and Holohans restaurant and a 90sqm multi-use space which can be used for temporary or visiting exhibitions, as a flexible theatre, conference, cinema and music facility. The museum opens Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 16:00, and, in keeping with its ethos to celebrate the Lagan’s legacy, is accessible to all ages. Guided tours are available. Group visits and school bookings are welcome and bespoke programmes can be planned. For more information contact: admin@laganlegacy.com or telephone phone 028 9023 2555. Belfast's maritime history is writ large on-board MV Confiance, the city's 'floating museum'. Inside this specially kitted out vessel you'll find Holohans cafe restaurant and, below deck, info panels, touch screens and interactive displays revealing the city's proud shipbuilding timeline. Find out about The Belfast Bottom, The Rat Killer and the Harland & Wolff-built SS Canberra. Then have a go at operating a model of one of the Samson & Goliath cranes. A unique location for a meticulously presented chronicle of what they call 'the greatest story never told'. Look out for regular live music and other events in its small performance space, too.
