72% of Sea Ranger candidates young women

01 Aug 2020 | Sea Ranger Service

With the deadline for the recruitment of candidates for the new Sea Ranger Bootcamp now having passed, one striking detail is coming to light; 72% of those signing up, are young women.

While the Sea Ranger Service actively recruits women for the selection of Sea Rangers, to ensure diversity in its ship crews, with only 1-2% of global seafarers being female, the high level of female applicants is a welcome result. Furthermore, it showcases the ability of the Sea Ranger Service to effectively extend this diversity within the broader maritime sector.
