Clare Allan started her UK cadetship in January 2016 studying her HND at Warsash Maritime Academy in Southampton, UK and sponsored by X-Press Feeders. We caught up with her to find out a little bit more about what inspired her and her thoughts on how more women can be encouraged into shipping.
V.Group’s UK cadets sponsored by the Maritime Educational Foundation were introduced to their new career with the Merchant Navy through a four-day outdoor team building exercise in the UK’s stunning Lake District.
Lee is our Cadet Training Officer based on the Isle of Man. He grew up in South Africa and as a former seafarer who came ashore in June 2014 we caught up with him to find out more about what he does, how he got to where he is today and who 'stole' his nose when he was six years old.
