Maritime Recruitment Services For The Marine, Shipping, Offshore and Shipbuilding Sectors.


Our maritime recruitment consultancy provides retained executive search and recruitment services to clients throughout the marine sector.  We specialize in maritime executive search and selection and are hired by senior level executives, corporate boards, ship owners and private equity firms. We identify, assess and recommend successful board directors, chief executives, presidents, managing directors, vice presidents, directors and other senior managers.

What exactly is Maritime Recruitment and Retained Executive Search Consulting?

According to the AESC, an association recognized by The United States Government and The European Union as being the representative body for the executive search industry, retained executive search consulting is "a specialized form of management consulting that assists organizations in defining and recruiting senior management positions.  It is different from other types of recruiting in that it is performed only under contract and on an exclusive basis." 

The founder and principal of our maritime recruitment firm has been awarded the CRA (Certified Researcher/Associate) designation by the AESC.  This designation represents evidence of the highest standards of executive search and adherence to the ethical canons of the profession. Less than .01% of all executive research, search or talent acquisition professionals have achieved this level of performance, worldwide.
