The end of September saw over 650 cruise ship professionals from across Europe come together at The Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (ACC Liverpool) to meet recruiters, including Faststream Recruitment and a variety of cruise lines at Cruise Job Fair Liverpool 2018.
The day gave current cruise professionals and those looking to enter the industry, an opportunity to network and hear presentations on the exciting cruise industry.
The Faststream specialist cruise recruitment team made up of Danielle McGrath, Elizabeth Mahony and Laura Humby were delighted to meet with these professionals, as well as several key clients who were in attendance.
Danielle McGrath, Manager of the Faststream Cruise Specialist team, gave a well-attended presentation “Mapping your career in the cruise sector and beyond”. Danielle took her engaged audience through a variety of career journeys available in the cruise industry.
Engineering was highlighted as an area with many career and promotion opportunities. The audience saw the different routes available from 3rd Engineer right up to Chief Engineer, as well as shore-based opportunities such as Technical Superintendents and Fleet Directors.
As well as the cruise sector, Danielle presented other opportunities available in different sectors, such as Superyachts, where Faststream has seen a huge success in the crossover from cruise, LNG, Ferries and Offshore.
Faststream Recruitment believes in giving professionals the tools to succeed and Danielle shared Faststream Recruitment’s top tips on how to be successful, detailing important elements such as having clear career goals, how to stand out for the right reasons, and working exclusively with a recruiter such as Faststream.
The Faststream Recruitment Cruise Specialist team gained a lot from Cruise Job Fair Liverpool and were delighted to see new and old faces. Faststream is already booked to attend Cruise Job Fair Liverpool 2019 and are excited to meet the new professionals entering the cruise sector.
