The prospect of using a Recruitment Consultancy draws mixed opinions in the Marine and Shipping sector. The sector is often the afterthought of an agencies Oil and Gas Division or it comes as a bolt on to a Manning Agent services both of which regularly fail to offer the quality which the industry demands. There are a number of very good individual recruitment consultants working with the industry but it is often the case that they are not receiving the support or direction inherent of working for a Specialist Marine and Shipping Recruitment Consultancy.
These Consultants often get lost in the noise of recruitment agencies with a minimal understanding of the very unique needs and demands of both clients and candidates who work in the Marine and shipping sector. This leads to the following situation:
A Specialist Maritime and Shipping Recruitment Consultancy, set up with the express aim to support the companies which are involved in every stage a floating assets lifecycle (from conception to decommissioning), delivers significant benefits to the industry as whole.
Clients benefit from working with a consultancy with a depth of knowledge and experience. This translates into knowing that the expectation of their requirements is understood and built into to the recruitment process.
This enables the client to have confidence that they will receive real qualified candidates who are relevant for the specific vacancy or contract. This goes on to reduce the recruitment fatigue and allows the proper giving of feedback to candidates.
By working with a Specialist Maritime and Shipping Recruitment Consultancy candidates know that they are receiving proper advocacy on their behalf for their application by an organization with a good reputation and relationship with the industry. Candidates also benefit from the knowledge of market trends and emerging opportunities as well as advice on submission, interviewing and offer negotiation.
Good Recruitment Consultants:
Recruitment consultants who are passionate about the marine and shipping industry benefit from working with a Specialist Maritime and Shipping Recruitment Consultancy as they will be working in an environment which encourages cross pollination of relationships and knowledge as well as direct support from like minded colleagues who can be trusted to deal with clients and candidates. Having a Senior Management which understands the sector is also vitally important in enabling a consultant to deliver the most for their clients, candidates and their own career.
