Clyde Marine Recruitment Ltd (CMR) has been supplying Marine Recruitment and Crew Management services for over 40 years

Established by David Livingstone OBE in 1981 CMR grew to form The Clyde Group. In 2011 there was a demerger and CMR returned to family ownership under leadership of Ian Livingstone MD.

Our recruitment and crew management services are flexible, we specialise in creating bespoke services to suit your requirements. The team are quick to respond to the ever-changing nature of the industry, and are well versed in short-notice crewing projects.

Thanks to our innovative digital system we have an extensive, and constantly growing, pool of candidates.

CMR began using Ankaa in 2020 and committed to a paperless future soon after the switch by removing all filing cabinets, and report an 87% reduction of paper usage.

The system had assisted in improving compliance, enabling remote audit and more efficient office working. Our clients are happier too, we can share seafarer profiles, documents, certificates and other pertinent information in a GDPR compliant manner at the click of a button.

Since launching Digital Profiles CMR have gathered accurate data for all our candidates, providing a broader reach across talent pools and a greater selection of candidates for our clients.

Clyde Marine Recruitment came recommended by one of our colleagues in the UK and we have used their services ever since we started to work in the UK in 2021. They have proven to us that they can be relied upon at all times and were able to provide vital crew on very short notice on numerous occasions.​

The team at CMR were incredibly professional assisting the company during a very challenging time for our business, they not only sourced capable and competent crew but managed the whole process from mobilising and demobilising to also running payroll on our behalf. They seamlessly tied into our existing purchasing systems and made the whole project run smoothly from start to finish.

We can wholeheartedly recommend Clyde Marine Recruitment for all crewing needs. They will not disappoint and their commitment to their customers is truly one of a kind.
