The more professional of super yacht crew do not hand out dog-eared CVs at boat shows choosing instead to register with specialist industry recruitment agencies to find their next job.
Now they can do that in the super yacht hot-spot of Malta now that Vella Marine Malta has opened the islands very first crew recruitment agency.
Captain Edwin Vella from the family-run Vella Marine Malta said, “We already have a very reputable shipping and yacht services company here at Vella Marine. As a super yacht captain myself, and with regular contact with so many other captains, crew and owners, it made sense to introduce recruitment services to our portfolio of superyacht services, too.
“Now, we can help with everything from fuel, customs clearance and refit management to a complete crew recruitment service. This has been lacking in Malta until now, and with our extensive network of high-calibre international clients, we hope that 2013 proves to be a fantastic opening year for this new sector of our business.”
Vella Marine have turned to Yachting Pages to help spread the word of their opening because the directory is delivered to over 60,000 people worldwide
Kerry O’Neill, marketing executive with Yachting Pages, the leading super yacht directory said, “We are thrilled that they have chosen to reach out to the super yacht world with our help.
“We’re confident that plenty of super yacht crew in the region and internationally will choose to seek their next superyacht position through Edwin and that many captains in turn will come to him for advice and crew recommendations.
