Sea-Going Modern Apprenticeships


Inverclyde intake of apprentices

CalMac Ferries is committed to developing and training young people across the communities we serve

Decisions about your future careers are some of the most important choices you'll make. We know that. Consequently, here at Caledonian MacBrayne, our Modern Apprenticeship programme, and the apprentices who join it, are so important to us. 

We have a proud history of navigating some of the most challenging waters in the country. Our hardworking and skilled people have driven this legacy - and with that in mind, we have an important role to play in developing the next generation of seafarers and protecting these skills for the long term, while also helping to develop and train young people from the communities we serve.  

The recruitment process for our 2024 Modern Apprenticeship intake is now open. We are seeking the most dedicated and enthusiastic 17-24 year olds from across our localities who have a genuine passion for maritime and pursuing a career with CalMac. This year, we offer two industry-leading seafaring programmes - engine and deck ratings. If you think you fit the bill, and you are interested in joining our team, then we look forward to hearing from you. Applications close on Monday 18 March 2024 at 9am.
