In Conversation with Tim Howse of Gard UK

About The Webinar

This webinar is part of the Sea to City networking and mentoring scheme, run by Nautilus International and Maritime London, aiming to encourage seafarers looking to move ashore to consider maritime services positions in London.

Helen Kelly, Director of Communications at Nautilus International will host Tim Howse, Vice President and Head of Industry Liaison at Gard UK,  who will share his own experience of making the transition from seafaring to a career onshore, with the webinar attendees being able to post questions throughout the session.

If you are an ex-seafarer looking for the next step in your career or currently working at sea but thinking of coming ashore, join us for a 30-minute-long conversation (live or watch a recording later) with a maritime services professional who has made a successful sea-to-shore career transition.
