Maritime Transport is one of the largest transport companies in the UK offering secure and rewarding employment to service leavers across the country…

With 27 depots, spanning from Teesport to Southampton, Maritime pride themselves on the strength of their network and their ability to support service leavers from a number of key locations across the UK.

Maritime are known for their high standards and have set themselves apart from other employers by introducing their new DCPC Driver Training Programme. The programme comprises of several courses, some mandatory as a driver, and looks to ensure all of Maritime’s drivers are trained to the same high standard whilst learning new skills and gaining important qualifications to help set them apart from other drivers in the industry.

Maritime’s commitment to staff training and development doesn’t stop there. To help service leavers find a career they’re happy with, Maritime offer work experience placements across the business. Ex-service personnel can trial their potential new career for up to two weeks, both out on the road and in the office, before they make any decisions.

The transition to civilian life can be daunting, Maritime provides each service leaver with a mentor – someone they can confide in and learn from.

After gaining their Class 1 licence whilst serving, most service leavers choose to join Maritime as an HGV driver. This is a fantastic way for them to learn all about the business and can often lead to progression within the company, with several now taking on the role of driver administrator or even driver trainer – supporting any new service leavers joining the company.

Particular effort has been made over recent years to help offer stability and security to those leaving the forces and now looking for a smooth transition back into civilian life. Speak to Maritime today to be part of a company that is leading the way in the transport sector.
