20 years! The Maritime London Officer Cadet Scholarship (MLOCS)

JLJ Maritime, was a proud sponsor of the 20 year anniversary celebration of The Maritime London Officer Cadet Scholarship (MLOCS), held in the Lloyd’s building in London on 5th December 2012.

Jonathan Jones is an honorary trustee and was instrumental in the creation and launch of the scholarship.

MLOCS, is a charity which provides the funds to enable young people to undertake the three to four year training required to become a Merchant Navy deck or engineer officer. The charity currently has 20 cadets aged between 16 and 23 at various stages of training.

“ UK shipowners seemed content to employ cheap and cheerful foreigners, and surviving maritime colleges were diversifying. Then, through the energies of Jonathan Lloyd Jones, who

worked as a Lloyd’s underwriter and who had thought the maritime skills conundrum through, the Lloyd’s Officer Cadet Scholarship launched.” Lloyd’s List, 17th December 2012.
