Our people are the most important asset to our business and we continually invest in those who display passion and drive to be the best. We commit to provide full training and guidance to support you through personal development and career progression.
The job of a crewman is physically demanding, therefore the need to possess sufficient levels of strength, stamina and endurance should not be underestimated.
Essential skills required include self-motivation, excellent punctuality and the ability to work well within a team. Possessing strong communication skills with the ability to listen clearly and follow instruction safely is also integral to becoming a great crewman.
Within London a UK driving licence is not essential but may prove advantageous. For all regions outside of London a UK driving licence and own vehicle is extremely advantageous. Fuel rates are paid for the use of own car.
From time to time you may be expected to travel in and around any major UK city and may be asked to consider brief bursts of international work.
Crewsaders are London Living Wage champions and offer many incentives and bonuses as well as the structure of flexible working hours and uncapped earning potential.
Our company culture is important to us, our ethos being ‘work hard, play hard’. The role of a Crewsader is one of sheer hard work, discipline, commitment and reward. Working hours can be long and unsocial, but with the close ties we establish as a friendly, supportive and inclusive crewing family – we don’t forget to have fun too.
The company sports an open door policy and encourages discussion when considering the ways in which to improve our culture and working practices. On occasion it’s not unusual to see the MD on site working as part of a crew team, keeping on top of the game and leading from the field. We believe in the strength of the collective and that’s what makes us tick.
Whether it’s playing sports, dining out, crew drinks, swimming with sharks or hosting a live band night down the local crew pub, there’s never a shortage of ways to get involved!
To attract and retain the best in crew, we know that great benefits are a no brainer.
In addition to all usual employment benefits, we provide our crew with membership to Perkbox, a benefit providing hundreds of perks, freebies and discounts on big-name brands and experiences.
As a company we also provide inflated Pension contributions, Death in Service remuneration as well as additional holiday entitlement for long-term service employees. Pay rises are awarded in direct correlation to hours performed onsite, whilst employees are given the option to invest in a Cycle to Work scheme as well as some crew being eligible to a pre-paid Travel Card.
We strongly believe that hard work shouldn’t go unrecognised, which is why we assess all client feedback on a monthly basis and reward top crew with great prizes. In addition to this we also hold two further prize drawers per year to celebrate worthy crew for their hugely valued, ongoing achievements.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of all is the acknowledgment of crew loyalty, dedication and accomplishment through membership of our exclusive ‘10K Club’. Our 10K Club is a growing cartel of some of the most experienced and knowledgeable crew in the industry. To become a member of the ‘10K Club’, employees must work 10,000 crew hours onsite to receive their 10K status. Once 10,000 hours have been reached, crew receive their very own Tag Heuer watch as a special thank you for their continued service to Crewsaders.
We’re a fan of fitness but also a huge advocate of wellbeing.
We understand that wellbeing is not just a physical issue but affects our emotional and mental health capabilities also. Working within a male dominated industry, we are all too aware that speaking out about mental health issues can be difficult. We believe it is our duty as a responsible employer to break this taboo and provide access to free counselling and support.
As a proud supporter of MIND, we champion in-work initiatives such as the ‘Time to Talk’ Campaign and approach all aspects of mental health within the workplace extremely seriously.
Our unique Sports Injury Service provides a dedicated therapist every fortnight for crew to receive assessments and treatment for any aches, sprains or injuries that they may have received onsite or otherwise.
Keeping our crew in optimum health so that they may crew safely and sufficiently is one of our greatest priorities.
