Established in 1861, we are the most iconic shipyard in the world.

From supporting naval defence across the world to work on some of the largest cruise liners, Harland & Wolff presents variety, challenge and fun.

Wellbeing and work-life balance mean our crew are always ready to build success stories. We are fully engaged and satisfied only when the job is done.


We embrace the future and are encouraged to find new and better ways of doing things. At every level, we are encouraged to challenge the status quo and good ideas are rewarded. This is not a workplace that stands still, we are all disruptors.


Talent comes first in our company. We welcome applications from candidates regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. We are a welcoming community and strongly believe the more diversity the better!
