"Be organised to get the job working on a superyacht" says the crew recruitment agency The Crew Network. Early summer is normally a good season for crew placement. Yachts that had a skeleton crew in the winter need new crew for the coming summer season and spring is also a natural time to change yachts for crew that are looking for career opportunities.
Whilst there are many opportunities to get a job on yachts at the moment, crew members with certificates in order, good references and longevity have a greater chance than others without to get the jobs available.
The agency reports that recent weeks have also shown a large increase in the number of newbies trying to enter the market and looking for work as well as the usual high demand for licensed engineers.
