Why Choose TYS Recruitment?

Testimonials, what our crew say, edward, bosun.

I had the pleasure of working with Taryn recently, and I must say, her professionalism and expertise surpassed all expectations. From the moment we connected, it was evident that Taryn was dedicated in making sure the boat was the right fit for me. Taryn demonstrated exceptional communication skills throughout the entire hiring process. Tayrn promptly kept me informed with the boat movements and made the whole process very easy.

Claudia, Stewardess

I got in contact with Eloise at TYS Recruitment regarding a temp job. The communication with Eloise was outstanding. She quickly picked up my contact and she gave me a good overview of what the job implied. She made sure that both parties were happy with each other. I would highly recommend her as she has a very friendly and positive approach. She doesn’t hold you on the line and she cuts to the chase, which is very appreciated in this industry.

Victoria, Sole Stew

Taryn has been exceptional in every step of the process from the initial reach out to the phone interview and to my placement in my current position. She was extremely informative about the position and the boat and continued to check in with me throughout the final interview and even as I am still on board. She really did find the perfect “home” for me with the boat, crew, Captian and owners. You have an amazing lady working for you and I can’t thank her enough for making this such an awesome experience!

Lauryn, Deck/Stew

Out of my three years in yachting, this is the first time I’ve gotten a position through working with an agent. After seeing a position I was interested in, messages, calls, responses and communication were also timely and fluid. It was a quick process that landed me a job in my favorite crew and program yet! Thanks to Taryn, I’m working in a great program with the best crew & camaraderie I’ve experienced to this date

What Our Clients Say

Thomas, captain.

Taryn at TYS did a great job with communicating the Captain and Stewardess Job available while providing a smooth transition onboard. The   resources of stewardess online training (through the sister company, The Yacht Stew Academy), progressed a green stewardess into a sole stewardess on a 112’ very quickly. Highly recommend TYS. 

Arina, Chief Stewardess

The Yacht Stew Recruitment is the best recruitment agency I have worked with, I can highly recommend them. I recently needed to recruit a stewardess for a third interior in my team and was looking for a very specific person to fit our boat. Gemma and her team made this process so easy and left no stone unturned. They immediately knew what I was looking for and they really narrowed it down to great quality candidates. They checked in with me continuously following up on the stewardess they have placed for us.

Toni, Chief Stewardess

My experience with TYS Recruitment has been absolutely amazing. The amount of CV’s that came through, the way everything was laid out was highly efficient. Eloise constantly stayed on top of everything and even helped the green stews to understand their joining contract and SEA. Just amazing! TYS Recruitment most definitely stands out as my preferred agent.

Kate, Chief Stewardess

I asked TYS Recruitment to assist me in the hiring of a new stew. The team didn’t waste anytime diving in and asking me what kind of Stew I’m looking for and about the program of the vessel. The detail and time spent ensuring the candidates put forward were a complete match was evident. I gained a wonderful new Stew who fitted in very well. They were professional at all times and ensured I was comfortable and happy throughout the whole process. I will not hesitate to use The Yacht Stew again in the future!
