Crew Payroll and Employment

It is best practice to separate the asset owning company from the employer and for the provider to be a certified company outside of EU or US jurisdiction. We have a dedicated crew employment company in Guernsey, which handles all aspects of crew payroll and flag state approved employment contracts.  

  • Compliance with MLC and employment legislation
  • Crew payroll and international payments to crew bank accounts
  • MCA and flag state approved contracts
  • Individual Seafarers Employment Agreements (SEA) issued to all crew
  • Crew medical insurance
  • Social Security liability management


Crew Selection and Recruitment

Attracting and retaining good crew is essential to long term success.  Our detailed knowledge of the yacht, current crew and owner means our team of crew consultants can carefully select CVs to suit each vessel’s individual needs.  We ensure that candidates are properly trained and have the right experience for the position.

An increasing number of crew appreciate the benefits of working on a Hill Robinson managed yacht, as we facilitate career development within the fleet.

  • Understanding owners’ needs and preferences
  • Identifying suitable candidates and preparing shortlists
  • Interviewing candidates on a personal basis
  • Verifying the validity of candidate qualifications
  • Contacting references
  • Coordinating travel to/from the yacht
  • Ensuring crew are properly trained and familiarised on board
  • Career guidance and support
  • Easy registration at careers.hillrobinson.com

Hill Robinson Recruitment personalises the recruitment process, ensuring that the right candidate is selected for the position.
