The Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) has partnered with the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) to conduct a labour market study on Nova Scotia’s growing ocean tech industry. The purpose of this study is to understand business priorities and trajectories, alongside in-demand jobs and skill needs in the NS ocean tech ecosystem, and to use this information to develop robust skill mapping pathways for NS veterans seeking employment in this field.
This survey will explore recent and anticipated trends in the industry, including evolving and anticipated business needs, in-demand jobs, emerging skills needs, new or accelerated training needs, and recruitment and retention practices.
The survey will remain open until February 28th, 2022. It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and is best completed by a senior member of your organization or someone with knowledge on the above topics. Your answers will be kept 100% confidential. ICTC will not share any identifiable information about you, and your responses will not be connected to your organization.
On behalf of COVE and ICTC, we sincerely thank you for your time and continued support for Nova Scotia’s ocean tech ecosystem. As a token of our appreciation, the first 100 respondents will receive a $20 voucher for SkipTheDishes.
Should you have any questions or comments about this survey, please feel free to contact ICTC’s Chief Research Officer, Alexandra Cutean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
