Offering a Sea2Shore career for former seafarers is what started the Division Onshore (former Divison Select) in 2007. Today there is still a great demand for this service amongst both seafarers and clients. A recent example from our client Damen.
Name: Jelle Visser
Position: Operational Director Damen Services
Question: You recently made use of our services for two ‘Project Engineer Services’-positions. We take pride in the way we match our candidates – particularly former seafarers – to our clients. How did you experience our services?
Jelle Visser: ‘The service from TOS with regards to two new project engineers in the Damen Service organization was excellent. TOS is from their field of expertise well known with seafarers, but their services go beyond that by helping seafarers who are looking for a new challenge. We recently welcomed two new candidates who started their first shore based job after sailing for a couple of years.’
Question: Can you indicate in what way TOS responded to your wishes and proposed creative solutions? Would you recommend TOS to other companies?
Jelle Visser: ‘TOS and Damen go back a really long time, even before TOS was established we already worked together. Both companies have grown worldwide and professionalized side by side and TOS is still a very trustful partner of Damen.’
