Clyde Marine Recruitment have been supplying bespoke marine recruitment and crew management services to the global maritime industry for over four decades.

From our family-owned offices in the UK, Latvia, Poland and Singapore, we not only source international crew but work in partnership with shipping companies and seafarers to provide a first-class, fully rounded personnel service.  We match quality candidates with respected maritime employers globally, but that’s not all – we can arrange interviews, book travel and provide payroll facilities for temporary crew as well as more extensive crew management services.

Many of our clients have been working with us for years, their return to Clyde Marine Recruitment is testament to our success in providing truly bespoke, value-added services. Read some testimonials here.


As a company we continually work to overcome challenges faced by our industry such as MLC, ISM, Pension Auto Enrolment, GDPR and data security.  Over the years we have been instrumental in guiding government and regulatory policy to address key issues.


Our innovative digital platform helps client compliance with GDPR and offers additional data security for both candidates and maritime employers.  The system improves document administration, offers easy to view candidate shortlists to clients and provides candidates with a digital space to collate all their documents, sea service and more.  Once hired, our digital crew management system helps us manage seafarer details better.  Our new digital systems are powered by Ankaa.
