A river of opportunities

#CareersOnTheThames event showcases the amazing breadth of careers available along the 95-mile stretch of the River Thames.

It is a FREE EVENT for careers advisers, teachers, youth leaders and anyone who spends time on the water and may be contemplating a varied and exciting career on the river that runs through the heart of London.

The event takes place on board the fabulous PS Dixie Queen as part of the Totally Thames Festival each September.

While you are taking a trip down the river you will have the opportunity to talk to some of the people who work on the Thames including engineers, skippers, deck hands, baristas, cabin crew, hydrographers and many more. You will also be able to find out about the apprenticeships on offer.

There will be a series of short talks from river operators, both passenger and freight, current apprentices and employees working on the river.

Refreshments will be served and you will have the chance to visit the on board careers fair which will provide the opportunity to chat with employers, learn about the different job vacancies and maybe even try your hand at new maritime skills.

During the trip you will also have the opportunity see the major infrastructure work and developments taking place down the ever-changing Thames. The trip will end with a spectacular raising of Tower Bridge to allow the PS Dixie Queen to pass through!

If you have any further queries please contact admin@thamesacademy.london.

We look forward to seeing you in September 2021.
