Marine Surveyors in Demand

June 18, 2023

The maritime and shipping sectors are booming and hiring managers are in pursuit of the best people in the market to help achieve their business goals. Across all sectors and disciplines, talented people are in demand.

The impacts of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine have made their mark on the shipping and maritime sectors, not just locally but on a global scale. The significance of global sanctions on Russian businesses has affected the transportation of goods as well as the global economy.

Maritime and shipping businesses are pressing ahead, keen to leave more turbulent times behind and prosper forwards. The four ‘R’s’ continue to drive hiring. Some businesses are restructuring – they are looking at how their businesses are organised and the changes they need to make. Others are ‘Reshaping’ – and are analysing the make-up of their teams and the people they need to remain competitive. Another group of businesses are simply ‘Replacing’ – they are making changes, particularly at the c-suite level with those they believe can take the business forwards with new skillsets. Lastly, we are still seeing some businesses take the opportunity for ‘Reinvention’. Some businesses are soul searching and making the decision to reinvent themselves, some want to focus more heavily on diversity and inclusion, and others are focussing more on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
