Things are happening with the vast Hire Crew project and you're going to start seeing changes shortly.
If you're looking to hire crew or to find a yachting position, here are some things you need to know about our upcoming Hire Crew search functionality:
- We are working hard to present only the most professional crew and new-to-the industry crew and are working to review each and every profile or registered candidate. This is a difficult process and we appreciate your patience as we streamline this process.
- Captains - yes, you likely don't have a recent STCW basic safety training certificate to enter in the STCW field. That's OK! Please DO NOT upload your Master or other Captain certificate here. Enter this as your primary license as these will be searchable! Please enter your unexpired first aid certificate in the STCW field which complies with STCW regulations. Check your profile afterwards - as with anyone searching for you, you will see you have the proper documentation in the proper places :)
- Candidates - we ask you to take GREAT CARE with your Profile page!! This is the page any hiring party will see when they conduct a candidate search. If you are uploading incorrect certificates, an unprofessional photo or have not taken the time to create a brilliant resume, you may find you will have trouble getting hired! Competition is fierce! We will be making profiles 'invisible' if there are any obvious errors (improper documents uploaded, for example) and you will have to resubmit your profile for review. Please make your experience with Five Star Crew the absolute best by doing things properly the first time!
- Candidates - If you find your profile is made 'invisible', there will be notes at the top of your page and an email alerting you to your new 'invisible' status, indicating what you need to do. We are working to make things easy, but again, make it easy for us too by doing creating your profile properly the first time :)
Thank you for your patience - we appreciate the fact that there are literally hundreds of places to find positions in yachting, and you have chosen to use Five Star Crew. This means everything to us :)
