A Career That I Really like
Conversation with Serena Fleming - recently qualified Third Officer
“I’m on a cable ship which is installing and repairing submarine cables.”
“I think it’s when I tell them I get to travel, it is paid for, and I get to work away from home.”
“It is a very interesting and unique career. I don’t think that the maritime industry is misunderstood but it is quite hidden from most people’s minds.”
