Do you have the RIGHT PEOPLE on your ship?

At Danica Crewing Specialists we understand the importance of having the right people onboard – and the serious consequences which can arise from not having the right people onboard!

The shortage of competent crew is becoming more evident and is growing to become a critical issue. Under such conditions it can be tempting to lower the bar of requirements and ease your screening criteria in order to get vacancies filled. Do not do this!

At Danica we maintain the highest standards in our recruitment process for good reason – because you need to know you have qualified, experienced and competent crew on your ship, and so do their colleagues.

Sadly, we are now seeing an increase in the number of ‘polished’ applications from seafarers who submit false sea service records and ranks in an attempt to gain a post they aren’t properly qualified for. Such people benefit from dropped standards – but not with Danica!

Despite the increasingly competitive recruitment market, at Danica Crewing Specialists we maintain the same high standards when recruiting seafarers. We continue to robustly screen, test, and cross-check documentation for every candidate to ensure they have the right skillset, competencies and behaviour to join our workforce.

Our excellent standing within the seafaring communities around the world helps us to attract quality candidates. We’re known for being a fair recruitment service offering jobs and careers with leading shipping companies. Our services are fully free of charge towards seafarers (no sign-on charges with us!) This enables us to continue to source the very best seafarers and our clients continue to benefit from having professional people operating their vessels.

In fact, we go one step further in Danica and offer partnerships with our clients. In this way we guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted supply of competent crew for owners working closely with us on recruitment and crew planning for the entire vessel. We call this the Danica Promise.

The Danica Promise does not mean that you give away control of the crewing of your vessels. Far from it. You can still participate in any part of the crewing process that you wish to, and you’re able to monitor all movements and decision-making through your access to our crewing application (app).

In short, we form a strong and effective partnership by combining your specific knowledge of your vessels and your individual requirements with Danica’s in-depth knowledge of the crew employment markets around the world – creating the right solution for your vessels.
