Your Guide to Jobs at Sea & Finding the Right Job for You

Eve Jones

Once you’re set on finding one of the many jobs at sea to choose from, you’ve acquired the right training and certifications and are sure you’re in possession of the right personality traits, it’s time to turn that dream into reality. Likewise, if you’re thinking of taking the next step and finding a more challenging role within the industry or are looking at pursuing different maritime job pathways it will be time to seek the help of the professionals.

Jobs at sea and how to find the right maritime job

Recruitment in the maritime industry is unlike so-called ‘traditional’ recruitment and with it being such a highly specialized area, you really need to work with a recruiter who knows the specifics of this niche sector. We focus solely on jobs at sea preferring to shun the ‘Jack of all trades’ route by sticking to exactly what we do best and in an industry we know like the backs of our hands.
