Not only is the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix just around the corner but the 71st Cannes Film Festival kicks off today. Its safe to say, therefore, that the Mediterranean yacht season has officially started! As the ports along the French and Italian Riviera swell with yachts returning from across the pond (and further afield), its not too late to find a great new yacht role for this season.
Spring is here! The start of April can only mean one thing: it is the yacht show season. First up, the Singapore Yacht Show which will be held from April 12th-15th. From there, the attention of the industry turns to the Mediterranean, and Spain in particular.
The crew recruitment data revealed annually by YPI CREW is an invaluable tool to understand the state of yachting today and is a key resource for all members of the industry.
The Mediterranean season is sneaking up on us and YPI CREW is currently recruiting for over 60 senior interior positions; from pursers to chief stewardesses, lead housekeepers and more.
Now that we are well and truly settled into 2018, February is the perfect month to start fulfilling those New Yearâs resolutions around career progression. Whether candidates are looking to land that all important first role in the yachting industry, or have recently completed the necessary qualifications to take the next step in their careers towards yacht Captain jobs, the experienced team at YPI CREW is here not only in a yacht crew placement capacity, but also to offer yacht crew advice on topics such as how to make your CV stand out from the crowd and essential interview tips.
YPI CREW, the leading authority worldwide in yacht crew placement, recently published its Crew Salary Report for 2016/2017. The results are compiled from YPI CREWâs free salary-sharing platform, www.yachtingsalaries.com, which collates salary information from thousands of crew and provides transparency to the yachting industry. The report comprehensively outlines the average salary range for each yacht crew position, from deckhands to captains, benchmarking industry standards and providing a point of reference for employers and crew alike.
With the festive period well and truly behind us, thoughts turn once more to the issue of crew recruitment. Captains and owners take the dawning of a new year as an opportunity to complete their administrative duties and crew reassert their efforts to secure their dream yacht crew job. YPI CREW offers new jobs to begin the year with a bang.
Following great success at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show last week - at which some of our recruitment agents met yacht crew and got the chance to see them in action - the YPI CREW team is ready to tackle the winter recruitment season, fulfilling your crew requirements and placing the best candidates in the best superyacht jobs.
An important topic for yacht crew, social security laws have featured greatly in yachting news in 2017, owing to the implementation of a new decree early in the year.
