Report: European Shipbuilding in Need of Skilled People

Thursday, June 05, 2008

The European shipbuilding industry is in need of highly skilled people, a recent study by Koers & Vaart for CESA and EMF revealed.   The report said an annual need for technical employees in the EU shipbuilding industry over the next 5 years of 11,000 people, which is 11 percent of the present EU shipbuilding technical workforce. Retirements taken into account the EU shipbuilding workforce has to grow by 10% per year in the next five years.

The EU shipbuilding industry has a high need for technical employees at MSc/BSc level an average need for technical employees at vocational level and no need for unskilled labour.

The future need for the total technical workforce in the EU-14 shipbuilding industry is distributed into the following function groups: 3% in sales and after sales, 17% in design and engineering and 80% in work preparation and production. This indicates a stronger focus on sales and after sales and on design and engineering at the expense of work preparation and production.
