  • Is there bias towards people who live near the sea or nearer the colleges?

    On the CMT facebook I notice that almost everyone's hometown is either Glasgow or various Scottish coastal areas...

    I live in the town which is the furthest away from the sea in the UK, and nowhere near any of the colleges.

    Would this put a negative on my application?

    Thanks!

      No bias at all, though Clyde are very popular in Scotland. The companies really don't care where you're from - being from near the sea doesn't make a great seafarer! Hope that helps!

        Also the people posting on the Clyde Marine Facebook page will only be a small portion of the cadets with them.

          I think clyde market themselves better as a whole and are even more active in scotland certainly several of my class mates are from there. its probably less about clyde and more about who people apply to.

          On a side note Clyde are my employers (for want of a better name) not my friends ergo not on facebook
          you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

            No bias towards where you live with Clyde, I also live about 60 miles from the coast and didn't have a problem
