BREXIT To Impact Maritime Employment

Major shipping lines reported that the UK’s vote to leave the European Union has the potential to drive many maritime employees away from British lines. Mark Charman, Group CEO for Faststream, a specialist in recruiting Maritime jobs said, “It’s a leave vote for the UK and a leave vote for UK maritime employees.” Charman said, “Global mobility has always been a positive aspect of working in the maritime industry.” The United Kingdom has a serious shortage of talent in shore-based operations and now these jobs will be more difficult to fill.
