Clients

The hiring and employment of Filipino crew need not be complex or costly.

Through our Guernsey and Philippines office, we are licensed by the 'Philippine Overseas Employment Administration' (POEA) to recruit, employ and administer seagoing staff onboard Superyachts worldwide.

In the initial talks, we will guide you through the setting up of a 'Crew Agreement', which includes creating specific ranks, calculating pay scales and formulising leave rotations. Once complete and agreed we make an application on your behalf to the POEA to have your vessel registered with them along with your proposed manning schedule. When approved, offers of employment can be made to Filipino nationals accordingly.

Our many years of experience working closely with our long term partner UPL/Source Asia allows us to provide a 24 hour service that is second to none.

Our dedicated Crewing & Operations Team in the UK and the Philippines will then continue to look after all of your ongoing employment & administrative requirements including:

Recruitment

The recruitment process is conducted in a similar way for all candidates. Our global recruitment team search our extensive database and pre-screen candidates who fall within your requirements. Only those who pass this stage are submitted to the client for consideration.

Certification & Documentation

Once a candidate has been selected for employment, our team ensure that the individual holds all of the correct certification (and licence) for the role. Documentation such as a Discharge Book and Seafarers Medical will be obtained or applied for.

Employment & Payroll

POEA regulated employment contracts are created, signed and submitted accordingly to the relevant authorities and to the individual crew member.

Monthly payroll for each person is then established ensuring that all statutory government contributions and home allotments are calculated and processed in a timely and correct manner.

Visas

Various types of visas can be applied for if necessary to join the vessel. We will apply for this when a joining date and port is confirmed.

Travel

Flights can be arranged in advance alongside the relevant visa application. We also liaise with the vessel/managers and dedicated port agents around the world, to ensure a smooth and hassle free journey. Ship and homeward bound crew, as well as the vessel/manager, will have access to 24 hour emergency contact numbers should any problems arise.

Our support does not stop here. When a Viking Crewing Asia crew member is employed, we provide 24 hour support and assistance to the crew member and his/her employer. Every crew change, every visa required, every urgent matter that arises, Viking Crewing Asia is on hand to ensure a swift response to the matter as well as ensuring the general well being and welfare of all crew members.

Already Have A POEA Agreement In Place?

Our full recruitment facility is still available for yachts to use who already have a POEA agreement in place. Should you wish to just recruit Filipino nationals on an "ad hoc" basis then this can easily be achieved under your current agreement.

OR maybe you are considering moving your current POEA agreement to another administration such as ourselves?

For more information please contact Louise Hunter, Senior Crew & Operations Coordinator.
