Marlow student trainees at various offices around the world taking-on real projects


Each year, Marlow Navigation around the world takes on students from both universities and secondary schools as trainees, providing them with an insight into the maritime and shipping profession and on-the-job training.

Students usually complete rotations in various key office departments, such as crewing, recruitment, training, finance and administration. With this, they are introduced to the industry at large and to the company, as well as gaining experience in specific departments. During their tenure, students are given real hands-on tasks, allowing them to be actively involved, gain responsibility and complete their own projects. Part of the programme can also include vessels tours and inspections.

“Such training programmes are instrumental to students, assisting them with their education curriculum and helping to kick-starting their careers and better their prospects. Their fresh and motivated approach, ideas and willingness to tackle and deliver on all sorts of tasks is also well appreciated by the company,” states Joint Managing Director, Marlow Navigation, Andreas Neophytou. “It is vital that as an industry, we continue to support universities and schools around the world to help provide students with more such opportunities, whilst also promoting our profession to newer generations.”

At the head office in Limassol, Marlow regularly takes on students from the Cyprus University of Technology (TEPAK), Frederick University Cyprus and the Heritage school, and this year from the University of Piraeus in Greece. In Germany, in close cooperation with Hamburg School of Shipping and Transportation as well as Berufliche Schule City Nord, trainees undergo a two and a half to three year dedicated apprenticeship programme in Shipping Management and Office Management. Meanwhile, Marlow Netherlands regularly hosts students from various secondary schools in the Rotterdam area, mainly for general practical work experience such as in the financial and administration department.

Marlow’s agencies in the Philippines, Ukraine and Russia also regularly take on student trainees from various local universities, colleges and schools, introducing them to the profession of crew recruitment, training and administration and providing them with invaluable experience.
