Why work in Marine?

Working in the marine industry is varied, challenging and ultimately, incredibly rewarding. A marine career balances out its many physical and mental demands with opportunities for adventure and fast career progression, as well as the chance to gain a plethora of different skills that you can use in other roles later down the line.

One of the most popular marine industry jobs we hire for, as an example, are Naval Equipment Technicians, who are responsible for:

  • performing scheduled and unscheduled equipment maintenance
  • completing related maintenance forms, logs, and records
  • performing organisation and intermediate level maintenance on a range of technical equipment
  • participating in functions to operate and maintain non-tactical computer systems and peripherals
  • emergency breakdown and repair

How does M&E support its clients to source the best Marine industry candidates?

From the sole example above, it’s clear to see that individuals in the Marine sector need to be particularly skilled. As a result, they are often highly sought after by different clients – however, sourcing such highly skilled personnel can be difficult, especially for short-term assignments.

This is where M&E stand out from the crowd. Our experience and ability to maintain relationships with large talent pools of well trained and qualified personnel means that the clients we work for are introduced to only the best candidates, and as a result, successfully meet all performance targets for each of their deployments.

Since 2016, M&E have introduced clients to a number of skilled technicians for marine engineering and marine industry jobs on short term assignments to support Foreign Military Sales contracts in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, providing maintenance personnel to meet scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on particular RNSF naval vessels.

We plan and coordinate a fully compliant solution that requires the flexibility of variable deployment periods and very specific skill sets that are often hard to come by, particularly with respect to the specific naval work required of marine engineering jobs.

Our highly responsive approach to both clients and candidates alike, along with our ability to offer complete support with respect to temporary work permits, work visas (Iqama in Saudi Arabia), sponsorship, transportation and accommodation, has proven to be a key factor to our success in this sector.

From initial contact to completion, we always maintain a close working relationship with our clients and those completing marine industry jobs so that both parties are actively involved in the process. Sourcing the most relevant manpower from our large, continually updated database ensures we respond swiftly and accurately to industry needs. And once our candidates have been deployed, the M&E team regularly liaise with clients and contract workers, monitoring and addressing any and all issues and challenges encountered throughout the life of a project.

But don’t just take our word for it – be sure to take a look at our Naval Maintenance case study here, where you can discover our success in more detail.
