Major Yacht Service’s staff have experience as crew on white boats – whether it be as a stewardess, engineer, bosun or deckhand. We understand what is expected of you and what you can expect out of a job in the industry.
- FREE REGISTRATION!! We do not charge candidates any registration or application fees. It is simply a matter of filling out a MYS Registration Form and attaching a clear and concise resume with a recent photo. You can also download your Sample CV above for an idea of what your resume should look like.
- Most boats are quite specific with what tickets and qualifications they require for the positions they are advertising. It’s a great advantage to either email or fax through copies of all your relevant tickets, certificates and reference letters. If you do not have reference letters from your previous employers, why don’t you download one of our Sample Reference Letter Formats above and have your employer fill it in for you. Be sure to list all relevant qualifications clearly in your CV.
- If you need us to write or change your resume for you, there is a fee of AUS$60.00 which includes a soft copy and two hard copies being sent to you. If you are located in Sydney it also includes your photo being taken and added to your resume.
After receiving your CV we do a reference check and receive feedback from your previous employers. When the captain of a yacht contacts us with a vacancy, we look through our database of candidates, selecting crew with the correct qualifications and the ones we believe would be best suited to the yacht. We then contact the selected candidates and discuss the requirements needed. If they are interested and available we then forward their CV on to the captain and he contacts the candidates directly.
Last but not least, please update us on your whereabouts regularly – this enables us to place you faster!
