Hill Robinson partners with Trinity House to support aspiring superyacht officers

Joint initiative offers sponsorship opportunities to young people enrolling in officer cadet training…

Hill Robinson and Trinity House are joining forces to create a new pathway for young people seeking careers as officers in the superyacht industry. Part of Trinity House’s Merchant Navy Scholarship Scheme, the initiative will see Hill Robinson and Trinity House sponsor four cadets in undertaking a three-year officer cadetship, leading to Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) certification as a Deck or Marine Engineer Officer of the Watch (Unlimited). 

The initiative is supported by Just Be Maritime, which will be managing the cadets, and Warsash Maritime School as training provider. Hill Robinson will be fully engaged in the cadet recruitment and selection process, and successful candidates will have the possibility of employment on board a Hill Robinson-managed yacht as their careers progress. 

“We recognise that crew play a fundamental role in ensuring excellent operational and technical standards on board our yachts to fully realise our client’s expectations. That is why Hill Robinson is delighted to be partnering with Trinity House to introduce newcomers to the superyacht industry and support them in achieving their career aspirations. Investing in young people is very close to our hearts, and we look forward to providing the young cadets with that first step into the superyacht industry,” comments Paul Cook, chief operating officer of the Hill Robinson Group.

Captain Nigel Hope, Trinity House’s Director of Maritime Training, says of the new venture: “This new joint venture with Hill Robinson to match fund training for merchant navy cadets on superyachts is a great enhancement to our Merchant Navy Scholarship Scheme. These exciting deck and engineer opportunities are a welcome commitment to not only a high standard of superyacht training for a growing sector, but also to supporting those from diverse backgrounds and who would benefit from financial and professional support.”
