Maritime Careers Day Conference

Date: 17/09/2014

A Malta Maritime Careers Day was organised on September 4 to serve as a platform for maritime stakeholders to collectively raise the awareness of the maritime industry and explore its vast array of ‘At Sea & On Shore’ careers opportunities.

The objective of the Event was to bring together professionals, educators and leading industry players to discuss and encourage the improvement in academic and practical training for the common benefit of interested students, the industry in general and Malta’s economic sustainability.  Another primary aim of the event was to increase visibility among students and parents of the career opportunities in this industry.

Further to presentations and discussions on the varied maritime careers spectrum of the market, representatives from the industry and other maritime related entities had the possibility to showcase their respective service/employment opportunities to attendees.

The Malta Maritime Careers Day was hosted by Wilfred Sultana & Associates (WSA) publishers of Yachting in Malta, who since 2009 organised three international seminars on the super yachts industry in Malta. This was done with the collaboration of the International Superyacht Society, the Professional Yachting Association and the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association who also nominated proficient speakers with Transport Malta providing the local alliance. WSA were also responsible for a pre-election yachting industry forum in 2013.

The Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Joe Mizzi, and the Minister of Education and Employment Evarist Bartolo welcomed this event.  “Initiatives like these provide the necessary drive to continue investing in the maritime sector in order to consolidate the country’s position as an international centre of maritime excellence in the Mediterranean,” said Minister Mizzi.

Minister Evarist Bartolo affirmed that “on behalf of my government I welcome this initiative to promote careers in the Maritime industry. At MCAST our Maritime Institute provides several courses and we encourage our students to obtain work placements with key players in this sector. We believe that this event will widen the scope for our students in the maritime sector.”
