History


Viking Recruitment has been supplying Deck, Engine, Technical Officers and Hospitality/Guest Services Professionals to ship owners world-wide since 1988, with some of the most prestigious names in the business having used our services.

We have an exceptional level of experience and expertise in providing a top quality, source and supply service of seagoing individuals to the industry.

Our association with the premier Holland America Line cruise ship fleet and the equally prestigious Windstar Cruises sail assisted vessels commenced in 1989, and our alliance with them continues to the present day. In addition we have an unparalleled portfolio of leading cruise and finest superyacht clients.

Here we recognise the importance of both Client and Employee and are dedicated to providing a 'partnership' approach which gives value-added service to ship owners and Officers alike. The accent is always on striving to improve on our already respected personnel function built on a framework of a professional and friendly team, priding ourselves on good judgement, confidentiality, and a willingness to meet the constantly changing needs of a demanding Client base.

We specialise in recruiting high calibre, STCW certificated Officers and Crew who are in ever-increasing demand in both cruise and yacht, following the growing sophistication, size, power and tonnage of these vessels, coupled with the ongoing safety regulations governed by the MCA.

Our growing knowledge and experience has enabled us to extend our support to the training, travel and operational needs of our clients, creating a FULL CREW MANAGEMENT facility.
