  • Specialist ‘industry knowledge’ days to familiarise yourself with different sectors and plan a realistic overview of your potential career path, whilst appreciating the expectations of the industry.
  • Exclusive access to UKSA’s Yacht Careers website, where you can apply for jobs as an existing and alumni student.

Support & advice

Train with us and gain exclusive access to our free online recruitment service and network of employers, amassed over the last 35 years. We support you throughout the application process, offering advice as an ongoing service as you continue your maritime career journey.

You’ll be able to create a profile, upload a CV and apply for suitable jobs from our online job portal. Access to this site is given as part of the careers and industry guidance programme and the service is available to you throughout your career.



I would advise anyone starting their training at UKSA to take every opportunity that’s given to you and remember there aren’t really wrong ways of doing things, just different ways, so don’t be disheartened if people disagree with you! And remember what it feels like to be new, when you’re more experienced give other new people the time you needed!
