Praxis announces new yacht crew recruitment partnership

Praxis has announced an innovative alliance with specialist yacht agency Insignia Crew to deliver streamlined recruitment solutions to the industry, adding further scope to its extensive range of yacht ownership, yacht crew and yacht management services.

The service will be accessible to Praxis’ clients via the Yacht Portal, enabling captains and yacht owners to start the process of identifying and building out their crews with the support of sector-specific recruitment professionals.

Insignia Crew, an MCA-certified recruitment agency, was founded in 2017 by Andrew Holme who has over 25 years of combined experience gained in the Royal Marines, the superyacht space, maritime security and specialist recruitment. The agency recruits high-quality candidates for the global superyacht industry, providing a tailored and highly informed service for at-sea positions.

Lee Madgewick, Group Head of Yacht Services at Praxis, said: ‘The Praxis and Insignia Crew teams are well-known to each other and there is strong synergy in our approach to delivering bespoke services and providing specialist knowledge.

‘This partnership is a great development for our clients, which has been specifically timed to meet the recruitment and crew-building challenges of the busy and imminent Mediterranean season.’

Insignia Crew has a large pool of candidates who were previously in the military services, but also attracts other high-calibre candidates who have previously worked in the yachting, hospitality and private staff sectors, and whose skill sets and experience are well-aligned with yacht crew requirements.

‘Insignia Crew has always valued the significance of forming strategic partnerships; reputable businesses uniting with a shared goal of delivering excellence to clients,' said Andrew Holme, Managing Director of Insignia Crew.

'The Praxis and Insignia Crew partnership is a wonderful example of this vision becoming a reality. We are extremely excited at the prospect to expand, bring value and support to the Praxis Group and its ever-growing client base.’
