YachtMe is a user-friendly app and web platform that redefines yachting recruitment. It provides a new way for captains and agencies to connect with yacht crew as well as connecting yacht crew with other yacht crew.
For crew you simply answer a few basic questions on the app. YachtMe then takes this information and builds you a digital CV that boats and agencies can view on their own web based platform. You then have the ability to upload a few photos, a 30 second video introduction as well as documents such as your original CV.
Our automatic review system contacts the references you add in the app and ask them to give you a rating. This rating becomes part of your digital CV and gives boats and agencies a better picture of who you are and your skills.
Once you’ve signed up to the platform, you can easily ‘check-in’ and update your location so that boats and agencies can see if you are in the area. All your information, in the form of your personal YachtMe digital CV, will then be displayed on our secure web platform where boats and agencies can access it. But why wait for them to find you? In the mean time look through your job feed in the app, applying for a job is as easy as clicking a button.
When you hit apply, captains and crew agents are instantly provided with your profile to view. If the captain is interested, they can directly message you to find out more, set up an interview or ultimately offer you your dream job. If you are shortlisted for a job you will be notified through our in house messaging service.
Therefore we are bringing in a level of personal synchronicity that we think the yachting industry job hunt has long been missing!
For boats you have access to a vast database of crew that you can see where they are in realtime. YachtMe gives you the ability to see who is in the area for a quick hire or possible daywork. Adjust search parameters to find only the yacht crew that suit your preferences, then view their detailed digital CV, look at a few pictures or even watch their introduction video. YachtMe’s rating system is the perfect tool to help you make your decision, check what other employees thought of a persons work ethic and personality.
Posting a job has become more direct. Before, posting a job meant advertising on a website or with email. Now crew members have their personal job board in their pocket wherever they go. Crew members can apply for the job and you are able to create a shortlist of the people you want think are a good fit for the job.
Finding crew, fast and efficiently has never been this easy and in one place.
