Our global reach

We are Crewing and Seafarer recruitment specialists. We partner with our clients across the globe, from the Americas to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.

Our access to global Seafarers and Crew

We have unique access to Faststream’s global database, which is an unrivalled source of Crew and Seafarer professionals for the global Offshore market. We ensure that we regularly update our database with our candidate’s latest CVs, qualifications, experience, compensation, and motives in their next Crewing or Seafaring job. This ensures that you have the most up to date information about candidates that you are reviewing or interviewing.

We utilise the latest technology to aid our Recruitment Consultants to source, recruit and select Seafarers and Crew to help you find the best candidate(s) for your position quickly and efficiently.

We use telephone, face to face and video interviewing in our selection process.

Passive marketplace

In a skill short marketplace where Crewing candidates with Offshore experience are passive and are not applying for advertised jobs, not posting their CVs on job boards and not talking to most recruiters, knowing who to call and having existing relationships is critical. Simply put, we know the people and the people know us.

We utilise our specialist sector knowledge and extensive head-hunting to engage with the people you need. We are committed to recruiting you the very best talent whilst representing you as an employer of choice and delivering the best service to both you and the candidates that we are speaking to.

Job qualification and recruitment processes

​Our tried and tested robust job qualification and recruitment processes mean that we not only find you the best talent the market has to offer but also enables us to give the best candidate experience in the market.

Our recruitment specialists understand the differences between the relevant CoC’s, know their BOSIET qualifications from their HUET and can navigate their way through the levels of compliance, assessment and interviews that help to ensure you make the right selection decisions.
