Global Marine Group Offers New Career Development Opportunities for Young People

At Global Marine Group, we’re proud to support and nurture talent through a range of opportunities for applicants to gain experience and skills within our organisation.

Over the last 170 years, our success has been driven by our people, who are filled with passion and the creative vision to work collaboratively in order to achieve greatness.

As our people continue to deliver customer-centric solutions across the telecommunications and offshore energy markets, we know that their valuable skills can be utilised and harnessed to develop the workforce of the future.

That is why we offer a range of career development opportunities, such as work experience placements and Apprenticeships across departments such as finance, business administration and engineering.

Many of our back deck personnel were trained and qualified in-house through our training and development programs, enabling them to forge specialist careers in jointing, subsea, and cable engineering.

Our cadet program, which offers a sponsorship agreement for a cadetship alongside Ship Safe Training Group Ltd (SSTG), gives those just starting their offshore careers the opportunity to gain an Officer of the Watch qualification. Offering a mix of technical and academic training and practical experience, whereby our cadets complete work experience placements onboard our vessels around the world, our cadet program has led to very successful and prosperous careers within Global Marine Group and the wider industry.

We also have partnerships with Cadet schools in the Philippines, to develop the excellent pool of budding officer cadets there as well.

We also offer an exceptional graduate program spanning two or three years, with six-month placements around the business to gain maximum exposure to a range of departments. The program enables graduates to expand their knowledge of different markets and disciplines, as well as enabling them to discover a career path they really enjoy. Previous GMG graduates have gone on to become Project Managers, Project Engineers, Directors of Business Development and Marine Managers.

We also offer our existing colleagues a range of career development possibilities, including secondments and short-term opportunities within our international Joint Ventures or between our four business units – Global Marine, Global Offshore, CWind and OceanIQ.

The last year has been exceptionally difficult for those looking for work, and so in our latest efforts to support employment opportunities, we have committed to the UK Government’s Kickstart Scheme, which offers 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit the opportunity to gain vital skills and experience within an organisation. We hope that these work placements will enable young people to gain a passion for the offshore energy and telecoms sectors, and give them the confidence and skills needed to develop their careers.

Our commitment to transferring skills is not confined to the UK alone. As a Group, we understand that the key to our business growth and success is our diverse workforce, who bring innovative ideas and creative viewpoints to their work. Through recruiting and developing a local workforce within the communities we work in, such as the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, we can help grow the sectors we work in across the globe, offering developing communities greater career opportunities in the process.
