What your maritime skills are worth ashore

February 20 - The latest Maritime Employment Report from international specialist recruiter Faststream places a sharp focus on the gap that exists between perception and reality across the industry.

Not surprisingly, seafarers seeking a shore career tend to focus on the traditional and more accessible roles such as superintendent, fleet manager and harbour master, said Faststream.

They perceive the more remote professions of law or insurance to be out of reach despite a large proportion of their shore-based colleagues stating the importance of having a seafarer in the office.

The report also reveals the gap between perceived and achievable starting salaries for mariners coming ashore after 10-15 years. Almost all underestimate how much they would be paid if they moved ashore to a related maritime role, Fairstream added.
