Welcome to the latest SYR View From The Desk

If you would like to receive this update as a monthly email register here.

You may have already seen through our social channels that we’ve agreed an exclusive recruitment partnership with Arrow Monaco to assist them in growing their technical and operational teams in Europe and the US.

We’re incredibly proud of this partnership and will be working with Arrow to bring them the best talent in the market. We’ll also be hosting an event with them at Monaco Yacht Show next month. Stay tuned for more information!

And on the subject of shows – can you believe we are almost in September? It’s going to be quite busy for us! We’ll have a presence at the Southampton International Boat Show, the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show and are really keen to meet with potential clients and candidates to discuss all things employment.

If you’d like to schedule a meeting with one of the team you can reach out to us at 

We’ve joined forces with SuperYacht Times on a series of monthly articles, showcasing some of our current roles and recent successes. Head over to the link for a read of what’s what and to see some of our current live opportunities. Take a look here >>

As always, we’re here to offer advice and practical recruitment support so if you would like to know more about our services, discuss your career or how we can help grow your business, please do get in touch

ED | CEO |

The design and engineering desk continues to grow within SYR. We’ve got some great opportunities at both junior and senior level right now across the UK and Netherlands and we’re aware of more coming online into the autumn period. With new orders remaining steady, this is having a knock on effect in employers growing their teams, allowing them some confidence in new hires.

SIMON | Senior Recruitment Consultant – Brokerage, Management & New Build |

Q3 has really taken off with a number of high-profile roles crossing the desk in most shoreside disciplines. The recent announcement introducing our exclusive partnership with Arrow is a testament to the good work being undertaken at SYR, and I’m excited to build on this over the coming months. I’m especially keen to hear from Charter Brokers and Managers with an interest in growing their careers as I have several very interesting opportunities in Europe, Dubai and the US. If that’s you, please drop me a line for an informal chat.

Continuing the Arrow theme, we’ve had several major wins within the management company space by introducing them to premium recruitment services beyond the industry standard contingent model. This has proved particularly effective in hard to fill/unique assignments and you’ll be hearing more about these in the upcoming industry press. Any shoreside company left unsatisfied with their current recruitment practices are welcome to contact me to learn more about these services.

Yacht Accounts Manager – Monaco
Like yachts and numbers? Looking to grow your finance career in the luxury yacht sector? Then check this new role out in Monaco!

Working at one of the industry’s fastest growing management companies, you’ll be part of a core finance team managing the fiscal operation at both individual vessel and fleet level. Overseeing budgets, expenses, payroll and project costs, you’ll have a strong grasp of accounting practices and an eye for detail. Able to work as part of a team and individually, you’ll prepare weekly stakeholder reports and ensure that the fleet is operating profitably and efficiently.

CURTIS | Senior Recruitment Consultant – Skilled Trades |

Things are picking up across the industry in Q3, after a somewhat sluggish start to 2023. The market seems more buoyant and companies are more confident in hiring new staff. Positions available are competitive in terms of the number of applications and the selection process is becoming more critical for hiring managers. Making the right hire is more important than ever!

SYR is here to help on both fronts. We are working with candidates to identify and match them with suitable businesses whilst engaging with hiring managers to target the right people in the industry that bring the key skills/experience needed.

So, if you’re looking for your next ideal job in the yachting sector or looking to hire for your team, please reach out and contact us here at SYR.
