Placement

As a part of our service to crew, we assist in the placement of our top candidates (if we have jobs available). If we are contacted by any yacht looking for crew, we only provide them with the CVs of our top students who excelled during SYSA training courses.  PLEASE NOTE:  SYSA is not a Crew Placement Agency - therefore we do not handle placements for students who completed the SYSA courses, however, we are often contacted by Captains and Senior Crew overseas and asked to provide a CV of a few of our top candidates, which we gladly do to assist our students who made an excellent impression during their training with us.

Industry norm:  Entry level crew struggle to be hired from South Africa. The reason for this is simple. Each year, at the beginning of each season, in both Europe and USA, Captains have the opportunity to meet and interview new crew face to face. This is often followed up by a probation period on board. Also, when a position opens up, the Captain wants a replacement immediately, in other words within a day or so… this once again, is not possible from South Africa, as crew need to get visas, organize flights, etc. These points aside, SYSA assists crew in being hired as much as possible.

Crew Placement Process

  1. After each practical training course, the Instructor will compile a Course Assessment of each student. This evaluates and assesses each crew member’s participation, personality, interaction with the course students, manners, as well as overall course performance. This vital information provides us with a more in-depth reference on each student, which can also be provided to Captains as part of each crew member’s portfolio. Industry Standards prevent us from promoting average crew.
  2. We assist our students in preparing a yacht standard CV.


OTHER MARITIME EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES...

Our company is focused on providing our crew with as many career options as possible. Super Yachting is not suitable for everyone. The thought of spending a large amount of capital, investing in a new career, only to discover that this is not the way forward, would certainly be a disappointment. We also offer advice on other options available within the Maritime Industry.
 

TEAM PLACEMENTS ON BOARD LUXURY CATAMARANS

These smaller, more intimate working conditions act as a great foundation for working within the Maritime Industry. It provides valuable experience and an opportunity for networking. You will be working on a 50 - 60 foot Catamaran, in charge of 8 – 10 guests. Couples interested in this option, should be young (in their twenties and thirties), energetic, presentable, dedicated to their job, flexible, self-starters and be able to sustain hard work and long hours. Because of the limited crew accommodation, we find that it works better if the crew members are in a relationship (married, engaged or have been dating for a period of time), as they share a cabin and ablution facilities.

Environment on board Catamarans:

On board the charters, all meals and refreshments (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are provided and the crew interacts with the guests in all aspects (diving, snorkeling, historical tours, etc.). Because of the close interaction between crew and guests, crew must enjoy socializing, conversation, entertaining, and have the ability to have fun and pass this onto guests.

Requirements:

* Captain - RYA Yachtmaster Offshore, with STCW 95, Radio License (RYA or equivalent)
* Scuba Dive Master or Instructor qualification is preferable, but not essential
* Chef/Hostess – STCW 95, PYA GUEST Steward/ess Introductory Certificate and some culinary experience or Chef Qualification

Please note: A commitment of 1 year is required.  For more information, please contact
