Hemisphere Crew Solutions offers a bespoke crew search and headhunting service along with generic recruitment.
Our services include a tailored search through our existing database and if we cannot locate a suitable candidate we will inform you, rather than sending irrelevant CV’s. We believe in finding the right crew for your yacht. We headhunt the right candidate and then approach them with your offer. (We do not approach crew who have been in situ for less than 12 months.)
Managing Director, Nicky Andre worked for one of the largest recruitment houses in London as a leading headhunter. Nicky headhunted for candidates within investment banks and FTSE 100 companies. Following on from this Nicky worked as a Financial Adviser in London for several years. She then decided to move to the yachting industry where she worked as a Chief Stewardess, ranging from 27m-60m for the following six years. Over the last year Nicky has worked for an off-shore yacht recruitment company where she sub-contracted her consultancy services.
With years of experience and the drive and ambition to open a luxury Crew Agency, Nicky Andre launches her own company Hemisphere Crew Solutions, with offices opening shortly in Monaco.
Hemisphere Crew Solutions are different from other agencies. We read each CV in hard copy prior to assessing if they meet all aspects of the criteria, then we will personally contact the candidate to gain their latest status update and to discuss the position in detail. A maximum of 5 candidates are presented to you along with our personal comments, ensuring your inbox is not filled with irrelevant CV’s and that we are providing a tailored search on your behalf. If for any reason none are suitable then we will speak with you to see if we need to amend our search accordingly.
Hemisphere Crew Solutions understand the need to get crew aboard at short notice. A member of the team will be available on a dedicated mobile number 24 hours a day including weekends. If you are working then so are we! The team will have access to our back office website and database, enabling them to be as efficient at the weekends as they are during the week in the office.
Hemisphere Crew Solutions offers reductions for management companies, new builds, and on multiple annual placements. All candidates must be in situ for 2 months, in the event of an unforeseen resignation or dismissal; we guarantee to replace our candidate free of charge.
Hemisphere Crew Solutions realises the importance of an interview service and if a member of the crew is unavailable to conduct these we will interview the candidate ourselves. This is only successful due to the time we take to get to know your requirements, your yacht, your crew.
We believe it is important to maintain personal contact between ourselves and yacht crew this builds greater understanding of our clients’ needs. Hemisphere Crew Solutions will personally come to the yacht and meet the crew to further establish a strong working relationship and understand the type of candidate you are looking for.
For free information please contact us directly so we can discuss in detail your needs and offer a tailored service.
To crew who are currently searching for your next yacht we will be launching a revolutionary data management system for your registrations. Giving you control of your file via simple, fast and efficient steps. Contact with crew is paramount to our business, as naturally they are the building blocks. Having been a member of crew searching (along with some other members of the Hemisphere team) for a new position we can empathize with the frustrations involved and we have taken positive steps to alleviate these encumbrances, where possible.
