TasPorts supports engineer and maritime careers

We’re investing in our future at this week’s UTAS and AMC Careers Fairs


06 March 2024

TasPorts is pleased to join the University of Tasmania and Australian Maritime College to boost the level of awareness about career options in the engineering and maritime sectors.

TasPorts will participate in the Engineers Australia Tasmania Careers Fair at the UTAS Sandy Bay campus today, Wednesday, 6 March. The fair will introduce Tasmanian students and job seekers to the diverse career possibilities in port engineering specialities and related fields. It aims to bridge the gap between industry leaders and students early in their academic journey.

The AMC Careers Expo, held in Launceston on 13 March, is a hands-on event that allows attendees to engage with 40+ maritime industry organisations to discuss careers, industry placements, job interviews, and more. Students will have access to industry representatives to discover graduate career opportunities in Australia’s innovative maritime industry.

We aim to show the scope of career options that are or shortly will be available in these sectors.

TasPorts is making substantial investments in the state’s port infrastructure to ensure sustained support for exporters and industries, and this has created a need for a substantial boost in expertise, both in the present and foreseeable future.

These endeavours aim to enhance the capacity and capability of TasPorts’ primary ports, with notable projects like the Devonport East Redevelopment QuayLink, a once-in-a-generation $240 million initiative, and the ongoing work in the planning and design phase for the redevelopment of Macquarie Wharf.

Our extensive, long-term programs underscore the pressing need for a highly educated and skilled local workforce, emphasising the need to secure Tasmania’s engineering and maritime future.
