The Challenge

JF Recruiting has provided an effective recruiting solution for the yachting industry over last 10 years. It was formed in 2003 by Jonathan Franklin, who has extensive experience in the yachting industry. The website was developed based on his first-hand experience and addresses the requirements of the industry’s employers as well as those of the employees. This is key to the website’s success.

JF Recruiting is the market leading online yacht crew Recruitment Agency providing a large database of worldwide yacht crew and a comprehensive search functionality. Recruitment of yacht crew can be difficult and expensive. JF Recruiting's aim as a Yacht Crew Recruitment Agency is to make the process of locating crew as simple and inexpensive as possible. The staff at JF Recruiting have all been professional yacht crew and understand employers’ needs.
