The future of the industry
According to the UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development), around 80% of global trade by volume and over 70% of global trade by value are carried by sea and are handled by ports worldwide. Many companies rely on the shipbuilding and marine industry to trade effectively, but we already knew that. It’s what’s on the horizon that’s exciting.
The shipbuilding and marine industry is expected to grow in the near future. Although COVID has meant a halt to trading in certain industries, the market for shipbuilding looks positive, with demand for eco-friendly ships, the increased use of robotics in the industry, and economic growth all driving the sector forward.
And industry growth means one thing - an increased need for skilled workers. Projects will require mechanical and electrical tradesmen, commissioning engineers, lifting specialists and more. And we’re the recruitment agency you can rely on.
