Eight of our very best MEF Officer Trainees were chosen to represent the future of the UK Merchant Navy at this years annual Chamber of Shipping Dinner. Congratulations to Tom Oates, Steven Brady, Blair Waterman, Craig Bays, Darsahn Sidhpura, Chloe Sandell, Reece Williams and Alexander Grout!
The cadets spoke with Robert Goodwill, Minister of State at the Department for Transport, at the Presidents reception, explaining how their training progressed and their hopes and aspirations for the future.
They were then able to mingle with guests after the dinner and help and advice on job searching in what is becoming a difficult climate for newly qualified junior officers.
In the words of Craig Cumming Marine and Professional Products Witherby Publishing Group who attended to dinner and spoke with the cadets “They were excellent ambassadors for the Merchant Navy”.
