Why use a yacht crew recruitment agency

Why should you use a recruitment agency when hiring superyacht staff?

Hiring superyacht staff can be a challenging task. There is a high demand for qualified and experienced crew, and it can be difficult to find the right people on your own. This is where a specialist yacht crew & private staff recruitment agency can help.

At Insignia Crew, we work with only the highest calibre of candidates who are often uniquely skilled based on their military experience.

In addition to this, we also have:

  • Access to a large pool of candidates: This means that you can be sure to find the right candidate for your vacant position
  • Expertise in the industry: Our founder Andrew has personally worked aboard superyachts as a crew member. He knows the skills and experience that are required for each role, the dynamics of a crew team and can help you to find the best candidates for your needs
  • Time and effort savings: Hiring new staff can be a very time-consuming and laborious task. We can take care of the entire process for you, from advertising the job roles to screening candidates and arranging interviews
  • Peace of mind: When you hire crew through us, you can be sure that they have been properly vetted and that they have the necessary qualifications and experience

At Insignia Crew, we provide a highly personalised service to our clients and we are proud of the longstanding relationships we have built on trust and reliability.

There are yacht crew services available online but when you use these services there no recruiters are involved. This can have many draw backs and be highly time consuming. For example, Captains have to look through a long list of CVs and the availability of candidates is often not up to date. Candidates aren’t screened and so the quality of the referral can often be poor.

We assign our clients to one specialist recruiter who will be their dedicated, single point of contact throughout the whole process. Our ethos is that our candidates are just as important to us as our clients – can’t have one without the other – we treat all our contacts as individual people, not just numbers on our books.

If you are looking to hire superyacht crew, then Insignia Crew can save you time and effort, and help you to find the best candidates for your needs.
