  • How do companies benefit from training cadets?

    I have recently been offered a place with Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd.. Unfortunately, they do not employ British qualified cadets at the end of the sponsorship. My question is: what's in it for them?

    Huge tax breaks for them. when i went for my interview with CMA we got a big lecture about, and why they are here employing cadets. I think it may be called 'the tonnage tax''

        I don't think companies are allowed to openly state that they won't offer any of their cadets a job at the end... if you read the details of the law on this, it doesn't sound like they can - nor do I think they should be able to either. I think the UK ought to be a bit more protectionist like the US and Austrialia on crewing.

            I also had an interview with Evergreen before and they said that they don't employ British officers because all their crewing is done from Taiwan/Philippines etc. Although they didn't say you couldn't go to Taiwan or the Philippines and apply to their offices there..maybe you wouldn't want to but I guess it's a possibility!

                Thanks for the info and links on this. I did think it was strange that they were so open about not employing cadets after training...

                  I have a feeling that registered UK seafarers are covered by some of the STUFT legislation, so you might find a brown envelope with OHMS on it dropping through the letter box if the Chinese/Russians/whoever press the big red button. I could be wrong though, and there's nothing obvious popping up on google.

                  just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages
                  down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for
                  new vocabulary.' - James Davis Nicoll
