Top Benefits of Using a Crewing Agency for Seafarer Recruitment

Updated: Sep 30, 2023

Did you know that over 70% of job seekers apply for jobs for which they are not qualified? This can make it challenging to find the right seafarers for your business. Fortunately, a crewing agency can help you find the most qualified candidates within your timeline. With an estimated demand of 1,545,000 seafarers worldwide, a crewing agency can save you time and resources while providing expert recruitment practices.

Here are the top three benefits of using a crewing agency:

Save Time and Resources

Crewing agencies have the expertise and resources to assess seafarers' CVs, references, training, and certificates quickly and efficiently. As a result, you can avoid the time-consuming and costly process of reviewing applications yourself.

Benefit from Expert Recruitment Practices

The employment of seafarers is subject to complex legal requirements that can vary by jurisdiction. Crewing agencies have the legal knowledge and experience to ensure compliance with the International Labour Standards on Seafarers. This will help you avoid legal issues and protect your business interests.

Access a Wide Pool of Qualified Candidates

Crewing agencies have a wide network of seafarers with diverse skill sets and experience levels. They can filter candidates based on position, expertise, skillset, and salary range, providing you with a diverse pool of qualified candidates. This can save you time and resources while ensuring you find the right candidates for your business.
