Quadrant Marine“I wish I had known marine service was a career.”

As director of the Quadrant Marine Institute, I’ve lost count of how many people have said this to me over the past few years. We hear this from recreational boaters at shows, educators and career councellors, and skilled trade workers in other industries.

Promoting the opportunities and lifestyle benefits that go with BC marine service careers are always on our priority list. If you or your company want to participate as part of your future recruiting and hiring plans, here are 3 ways you can work with us:

• Volunteer with us to attend local job and career fairs that reach high school students and youth.
• Help sponsor our Cardboard Boat Race initiatives with local middle schools in partnership with Skills Ready. We often need mentors and race judges for these events.
• Attend community events that raise the profile for careers in our industry.

We’re currently looking for teams to enter the Slegg Lumber Build-A-Boat Competition on Canada Day in Sidney. The entry fee is $30 per team of 3 and Slegg’s supplies $150 in materials of your choice from their store. Let us know if you want to join us for this fun community celebration.

Contact us if you are interested in any of the above ways to promote careers in your business and our industry!
