James Fisher joins Maritime London

As a UK based international service provider for the shipping industry, James Fisher is pleased to announce its membership to Maritime London.

James Fisher and Sons plc has joined Maritime London to support its promotion of the benefits of global marine service providers locating business centres within the UK.

A not-for-profit organisation, Maritime London works to raise awareness about the maritime business services that are offered globally from the UK, with the aim of developing new business opportunities for maritime businesses.

As a newly registered member we aim to help raise the profile of the UK's marine expertise and professionalism and with the opportunity to get involved with its Sea Vision UK campaign, we plan to expand our work and enable more young people to get involved with the maritime sector by supporting educational activities and their industry skill development.

We're proud of our commitment to developing future UK qualified mariners: our specially developed and popular cadet trainee programme enables students to gain experience and qualifications simultaneously, and has inspired young people (aged 16+) to learn more about careers in the maritime sector, gain practical sea experience and work towards an Officer of the Watch certificate of competency in deck or engineering.

Growing our contributions further with Maritime London, we hope to generate industry awareness to support the development of the maritime sectors future work force, and support the development of innovations for the benefit of UK maritime businesses.
