One of the best parts of working with YACHTNEEDS is the important job of sitting in a local bar in the evening, listening to friends talk about the good and the bad parts of their yacht crew lifestyle, and then working out how the app can make the bad bits better and the good bits fanbloodytastic.
By far the most popular topic of conversation in the last few months has been how time consuming and annoying it is to add your CV and details to all the different recruitment websites out there. Plus if you get some short-term work you then have to update every single website again.
Of course all this becomes worth it when you score your next amazing superyacht job… but, we get it. It ruffled our feathers too, so we’ve done something about it!
The next new feature to be added to YACHTNEEDS app is going to be the YACHTLIFE button. In this section they will have all the latest superyacht crew jobs currently available. Users can apply for the jobs with one click and the photo and details they have put in to their YACHTNEEDS profile will make up a personal application for those roles. All jobs will have a 15-20 day expiry date so will stay current, the crew agent or captain that posted the job can then use the chat function on the app to chat directly to potential candidates who apply, or choose to email them directly.
And that’s not all… The ‘cherry on the cake’ function for this new section of the app is being kept under wraps for the moment; but rest assured they plan to revolutionise what crew have to do to apply for their next yacht job, and it will all be up and running ready for the start of the US/Caribbean season… Exciting times ahead!
