Leading Performance Standards

The shipbuilding and repair industry in Europe face challenges of an ageing workforce, irregular work availability, and labour migration. Lately, heavy engineering and construction industries have seen an influx of shipyard workers into their workforce. With demand for refitting and retrofitting vessels to make them more emission compliant and a new generation of ships entering the orderbook with newer design and technology standards, shipyard workforce will need new skills to fill the positions that are becoming available. Reskilling shipyard workforce will require massive investment both at the national and the community levels. European shipyards are already building and test sailing LNG powered and Hydrogen powered ships. Navmar recruits shipbuilding and repair workers for white collar and blue collar positions helping eliminate permanent staffing costs and optimizing workforce productivity.

Large, Experienced Pool

Technological change, new emission targets and labour market volatility have all combined to create a skill gap in shipbuilding, conversion, maintenance, and shiprepair sectors of the industry. This has compelled many shipyards to geographically diversify production and manpower sourcing, and a demand for more skills and productivity. Navmar sources shipyard workers worldwide as a manpower agency and sub-contractor, providing skilled trades for project-based engagement in any market within the EU. Our recruiting team has developed long-standing relationships with shipyard workers enabling us to provide clients with skilled and qualified technicians with adequate experience. We provide customized manpower solutions focused on the special needs of each shipyard. As automation and digitalization gains momentum in the industry, Navmar will not only source new skillsets but also help retrain existing workers to help retain their services.
