Ready for your next step and a rewarding career where you can make a real difference?

As an island nation, the UK is almost entirely reliant of the safe arrival and departure of shipping from its ports, with around 95% of the UK’s goods entering or leaving the UK by sea. Every single person in the UK consumes goods daily that have been imported by ship. Manufacturers, energy companies, supermarkets, hospitals and many more vital services rely on ships and seafarers for their imports. Some 65 million sea-borne passengers globally rely on shipping for access to public services, employment, business and holiday travel every year.

While Trinity House is a charity dedicated to safeguarding shipping and seafarers, its role as a General Lighthouse Authority is essential to the prosperity of the UK.
