My recruitment journey started a few years ago when I left my position as 2nd engineer on a well known super yacht based in the IYCA. Working in a traditional recruitment agency gave me an understanding of the landscape and how crew were finding work. It became clear that crew and employers were not getting enough value from the options available and that there needs to be a solution that can better serve the yachting community. I have reimagined the process to make it easier than ever for crew to find their dream job while providing excellent value for clients.

My mission is to ensure that candidates and employers have the most effective and purpose built tool to connect with each other while maintaining the highest levels of security and privacy. Yachting is an amazing industry which I am proud to be a part of and it deserves an amazing recruitment experience to suit.
