is a national organisation dedicated to the saving of Britain's maritime heritage.
It is a charitable non-profit organisation that changes lives by training people in maritime skills. Our mission is to support communities in and around the North East of England, on the coast and inland waterways.
The MVS is uniformed with a promotion
structure similar to that of the Royal Naval Reserves but also with firm links to the Merchant Marine tradition. A training programme has been developed to offer MVS members a progression of practical skills.
MVS Northumbria is now in recruiting mode and will welcome applications from men and women, with or without seagoing experience, from the age of 18 and up. Whilst training the young is a priority, the unit also needs experienced personnel to pass on their experience to the next generation.
