I am well aware how fortunate that in the course of my career I have spent a great deal of time out on the water. Boats and the sea have always been my passion. To be able to translate that to the workplace has always been a source of great pleasure to me.
Back in the dark ages when I first started hunting for a job, the marine industry was not the multi-million pound industry it is today, and getting a job in this line of work was something of a struggle, so I was fortunate to get involved. These days, there is an absolute plethora of opportunities within the industry, and it, is more of a case of working out what you want to do and how to get involved.
This is where Working on Water comes to the fore, and it is an invaluable guide; providing you with a really useful overview. Have a read and, who knows, it may change your life. At the very least it could change your career.
