Emsworth Yacht Harbour

Despite COVID-19 having a detrimental effect on many industries, the UK saw a surge in interest for recreational boating activity. In response to the increased demand for their facilities, Emsworth Yacht Harbour were quick to embark on a campaign to expand their workforce, creating an opportunity to recruit four new Marina Specialists.

"This year, we’ve been fortunate enough to find ourselves in the position to hire new staff. As members of British
Marine, we took full advantage of their job board and successfully recruited four new members off staff without the
added financial pressure of agency fees

Emsworth Yacht Harbour wasted no time in searching for their perfect candidates and advertised their positions directly onto the British Marine jobs board.

Why did they choose British Marine to advertise the roles as opposed to the mainstream job boards such as Indeed and Total Jobs?

Emsworth Yacht Harbour have been a member of British Marine for six years and take full advantage of their member benefits, including free access to the British Marine jobs board. When hiring for niche roles, it can be difficult, costly and time consuming to wade through all the applications received from mainstream job boards and providers.

The costs include the fees associated with using a traditional recruitment agency, which can be as high as 20% of the candidate’s starting salary. By using the British Marine jobs board, the team at Emsworth Yacht Harbour feel that they saved a total of £23,000 in agency fees.
