You've been trusting Five Star Crew for almost 7 years now to provide you with timely, accurate job postings and now we want you to try our Hire Crew feature.
It's Spring - crew turnover is inevitable - you need to find new crew quickly. Thousands of crew have registered since we created our new registration system, 1.5 years ago and many are ready to be found within our system with YOUR search!
Try it! Click on Hire Crew and go through the motions at least just to see how it works! See how you can find free Stews and Deckies with under 1 year of experience. More experienced crew are found in the 'Customized Crew Search' and are organized by department - click on Captain, Deck, Engineer, Galley, Steward/ess - whichever you currently require.
If you're after a Captain, we pull candidates by their license level and by their interest of pursuing a Captain position. Choose your license level and we tell you how many candidates are in the system BEFORE you pay!
Deck crew are also broken down by license level but also by experience and interest of position.
Engineers are similarly broken down. Some have no formal qualifications and that works for some hiring parties where others require licenses - they're all in there :)
Galley provides you with Cooks and formally-trained Chefs and you can choose how much experience you require. 0-1 years of experience, 1-2 years, 2+, 5+, formally trained or learned on the job. They're there! Find one!
The Steward/ess category is broken down strictly by experience. As there are no formal rules regarding who can work in which position based on licensing, we rely on experience to help you find your match.
After you're satisfied with your search, click 'Pay Now & View Candidates' and you'll be pleasantly surprised at our pricing. We offer candidates at a greatly-reduced rate from a typical Crew Agency as although we do not do background checks, checks on licensing or references, please know we review EVERY SINGLE NEW REGISTRATION as it comes in and either allow them to use our services or make them invisible in the system (where they cannot use the job board either) based on any issues with their profile. If their Seafarer's Medical is out of date or if they upload something other than an STCW basic safety training certificate, we make them invisible. They will not appear in your searches. We write to these people and help them correct any issues with their profile to help get them visible, and once their profiles are ideal, we then offer them to you :)
So please click on Hire Crew - we offer 100% support, answer questions and reply to your emails every single day. Have a questions about the service? Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Customer service is our thing.
All the best finding your new crew this season!
