A river of opportunities

Thames Skills Academy would like to invite you to its annual #CareersOnTheThames event which showcases the amazing breadth of careers available along the 95-mile stretch of the River Thames.

This free event is for careers advisers, teachers, youth leaders and anyone else who is 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 on September 30th between 5pm and 7.30pm.

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 we offer.

There will be a series of short talks from river operators, both passenger and freight, current apprentices and 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 to get 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!

The PS Dixie Queen willl moor at Tower Millennium Pier for guests to board at 5.00 and disembark 7.30pm. The nearest tube is Tower Hill.

Places on the boat are limited, so please do register at your earliest convenience.
