The end of January saw the Faststream Superyacht team made up of Kelsey Connolly, Darryl Partridge, Laura Russell and Stephanie Blackburn attend the UKSA careers event in Cowes, Isle of Wight. The team met with the new generation of budding cadets who are soon to be graduating from the UKSA academy.

The careers event gave those interested in entering the Superyacht profession an opportunity to network and hear presentations on this exciting industry. 

Darryl Partridge, specialist Superyacht Recruitment Consultant delivered a well-attended presentation on life on a Superyacht and took his engaged audience through the career options available.

Darryl described the fantastic benefits on offer in a career in Superyachts, including an excellent salary, the opportunity to travel, creating life-long friendships and being part of a close-knit community.

Faststream Recruitment believes in giving candidates the tools to succeed. Darryl shared the Superyacht team’s top tips on how to be successful, detailing important elements such as; working with a specialist recruitment company like Faststream, making your CV stand out from the crowd, highlighting transferrable skills at interview, and creating professional social media profiles.  

The day concluded with 27 cadets being interviewed by Faststream with the prospect that they will be able to assist in securing them their first dream job on superyachts all over the world.

It was a fantastic day and Faststream look forward to joining UKSA for their next careers event.
