Sea-Alliance Group (SAG), the international maritime business, is undergoing significant growth and is now extending its offering to include Crew Recruitment as one of its many professional services.
The company, which provides leading services in yacht sales and purchase, new construction and technical management, yacht management, marina management and marine projects, has added this new service as it expands the scope of its management solutions in reaction to demand from its growing customer base.
The SAG Crew Recruitment division will be headed up by Jennifer Thomson, Sea-Alliance Group’s representative from the South of France. The company will use its professional contacts and experience of crew recruitment to create the new division, to which individuals seeking roles such as captains, deck hands, service staff, chefs, and yacht engineers will be encouraged to sign up.
Itay Singer, Director of Sea-Alliance Group, said: “As a busy yacht management company we are often coming into contact with well qualified and experienced crew, and already place all our own crew on board our managed vessels. Therefore, it was a natural progression to expand into offering this service for yachts and captains outside of our management fleet.”
He continued, “As a full-service management company we understand that having the right crew onboard is imperative for the successful day-to-day running of a yacht. We also know that the person who may appear like the best fit on paper is not always the right choice for any one boat, and therefore we interview all our candidates in person and verify references ourselves. We are focused on providing a high quality service and will ensure to place the most suitable candidate to each boat.”
SAG will select and supervise both permanent and seasonal crew.
