Maritime human resources

Research in seafarer employment and human resource management issues.

A wide-ranging and long-term research programme was commenced in 1997 into recruitment, selection and retention of seafarers.

In addition to shipping company sponsors, the programme has attracted funding from several organisations including MNTB, Trinity House, NUMAST, ECSA, ETF and the ISF.

Individual projects have included:

  • The development of retention tools (1998)
  • Marketing seafaring careers (2000)
  • Cadet terms and conditions (2002)
  • Alternative manning structures (2002)
  • The training and supply of senior Filipino officers (2002)
  • A national survey of UK cadets (2004) and career path mapping (2005)
