The BlueGeneration project, of which EBI is a leading partner, recently launched its flagship job portal. Companies in the recreational boating industry and across the blue economy can now advertise open positions and training opportunities free of charge to thousands of young Europeans.
The portal will be promoted to thousands of young people across Europe through school visits and promotional activities. Posting of job and training opportunities is free of charge for companies. The portal focuses on young people between the ages of 15 and 29 with the aim to attract them and start a career in the blue economy. The job portal includes a number of sectors, including nautical tourism and manufacturing roles.
EBI is a leading partner in the project that started in 2018 and will last until 2022. At its conclusion, it will have engaged with 40,000 young people and coached them to start a career in the blue economy. Other initiatives the project is working are a career guide, Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) and mentorship opportunities.
EBI Secretary-General Philip Easthill commented “We are delighted to be launching the job portal with our partners in the BlueGeneration project. Our aim is to provide concrete support to address the key issues of the recreational boating industry in Europe. Employment in the industry has increased over the past years and there is now a lack of applicants in many regions and companies. The BlueGeneration job portal is an excellent opportunity to promote a career in our sector to young people.”
