wilsonhalligan Wants You!

Have you been working in the yachting industry for a few years? Looking for a change of yacht or to progress your career into a more senior role?

Or are you just starting your yachting career? Or looking to make the jump from commercial ships to superyachts? Are you considering taking some courses, but not sure which ones will be best suited to the position you want?

wilsonhalligan are here to help!

There are no bad yacht crew (well, ok there are a few!) but we know that different crew suit different yachts and here at wilsonhalligan we hand-pick candidates to suit every unique position. We believe everyone should be treated with respect and won’t turn you away just because you are new to the industry. We know that today’s deckhand could be tomorrows Captain and we want to support you in your career every step of the way.

At wilsonhalligan we have specialist recruiters for every department, so when you speak to us you know that you are speaking to someone that really understands the positions on offer and what you and the client may be looking for. Many of our recruiters are also ex-yacht crew so are uniquely positioned to offer you help and advice.

When you register with us (or update your details) a copy of your CV is sent directly to a recruiter for review. If your skills and attributes match the requirements of our clients, we will get in touch straight away. If not, you will be added on our database and contacted as soon as something becomes available. You can also keep an eye on our website for the latest jobs and even register for notifications when new jobs are posted.

As a candidate, it is important to build a good relationship with your recruitment consultant. Please do keep in touch and check-in via the website regularly. We don’t always post all of our jobs online and with over 30,000 people on our database, it is good to be at the forefront of our minds when something new comes in. We would love to call you all regularly but sadly it’s not always possible, however, we will always do our best to reply to any email you send us.

When representing you as a candidate we are always professional and discreet and would never send your CV for a position without your consent. Whenever possible we aim to have a telephone interview with you to find out more about you and exactly what you are looking for. We will then spend some time discussing the various suitable positions we have on offer. If you would like to be put forward for any of them, the notes that are taken from this interview are written up to form your personal profile and submitted to our clients alongside your CV to further enhance your chances of gaining an interview.

For each position, we will fully brief you on what we know (or are allowed to tell you) about the yacht, its operations and the crew onboard. We always aim to be open and honest about this information so that you can make sure it’s the right boat for you. Once we have successfully placed you onboard, we like to keep in touch to see how you are getting on and are always here to offer you any advice or support.

So, if you haven’t been in touch for a while, please drop us an email and tell us how you are getting on. Or if you are not yet registered with us, why not sign up today and let us help you find that dream job!
