Marine engineers asked to take survey about skills gap

ADVERTISEMENT

The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and engineering recruitment agency Matchtech are investigating the skills gap of marine engineers and are inviting those in the sector to complete a questionnaire as part of London International Shipping Week.


Accessed here, the survey will take about 3 minutes to complete, and is aimed at gauging views to support an upcoming roundtable discussion.


“Our survey … asks questions about recipient’s organization and recruitment, women in engineering, the value of professional development, and graduate recruitment including whether new recruits are suitably prepared for the workplace,” said David Kelly, head of marketing for IMarEST.


The survey will be live until Sept. 9 when the skills gap roundtable will be held at the start of London International Shipping Week. Chaired by Rear Admiral Nigel Guild CB, Chairman of the Engineering Council and a past President of IMarEST, it has attracted representatives of key organisations who between them cover shipping, naval and defence, cruise, leisure, ports and offshore oil and gas sectors, as well as unions, academia and associations.


A white paper will be produced following the event. To receive a copy, e-mail your name, company, and e-mail address to marketing@imarest.org.
