Why crew need to sign up and get a Yotspot profile
If you haven’t already registered with us and made your Yotspot profile, WHY NOT? It takes a matter of moments and unlocks a host of jobs and opportunities. We have been a successful online tool for Captains and crew since 2010 and are a fully MLC 2006 certified agency. We currently have over 6500 registered crew members, 600 Employer accounts and are growing every day!
If you need a reason to join, here’s 10:
1. Create your Yotspot profile.
The Yotspot profile has been designed with the Captain in mind. It makes sure you don't miss out on the vital information you need to have on your CV. It provides you with a place to store your references, files, certificates and CV all in one place that is accessible from any computer world wide.
2. Make your life easier.
When applying for a job, are you tired of having to attach your CV, references, STCW certificates, and other documents every signle time you write an email? Other agencies dont let you share your profile. We do. Get a profile today and you can share all your information and documents with one link for every job you apply. Example:
3. Be found.
By joining Yotspot.com you can be discovered by Captains who have a subscription to The Yotspot 24/7 Account™. The 24/7 Account is a great alternative to traditional crew placement and has fast become our most popular product. A simple, easy to use tool for those that need to find crew. Captains sign up for 6 month or 12 month subscriptions and gain access to our entire database of professional crew, search engine and intelligent ranking system. If you’re not part of Yotspot, you cant be found by the growing number of Captains who own a Yotspot 24/7 Account™ subscription.
4. Apply for Yotspot roles.
Yotspot provides a traditional crew placement service. We source the best crew through thorough referencing and recommendations. Once you are registered, we can put you forward for the positions we are running. If you’re not registered with us, you can’t apply for any of the jobs we run.
5. Apply for agency roles with one click.
You can apply for all the agency jobs we have at Yotspot.com. We list a host of agency roles and our members can apply for them through the “Recruitment Agencies” section at the click of a button. At the time of writing this article we have 44 agency positions that our crew can apply for.
6. Job alerts.
At Yotspot you don’t have to keep logging in every day to see the latest roles. When you register with us, you tell us what roles are interested in. Every time one of those roles gets posted, you will get an email notifying you of the new post. If you’re interested, simply follow the link. Quick, easy and simple. Once you have found a job, just turn the job alerts off in your profile.
7. It doesn’t cost a thing.
Registering with Yotspot is free and always will be. You should NEVER have to pay to find work. It is against the 2006 Maritime Labour Convention and goes against everything we believe in at Yotspot. Be wary of any Agency that asks you to pay to apply for a role.
8. Direct contact with the employer.
When you apply for a role posted by a Captain with a subscription to The Yotspot 24/7 Account™ you are in direct contact with the employer. There is no middle man. The Captain can see your application, has full access to your CV and can contact you directly.
9. Come and be part of the conversation.
Our members enjoy the benefits of the “MySpot” section in their profile. 'MySpot' is your personal Blog that gets published within our interactive community. You will also gain access to the “Community” section where you can read the latest blogs, industry news, forum posts, career advice and top Superyacht tips.
10. Power in numbers.
The more people that join us, the more jobs and opportunities will follow. We have strived to create a user friendly experience that will benefit both those looking for work and for crew. By joining us today you are investing in a great tool that will save you time and support you through your yachting career.
