We believe hiring to be the most important first step towards the organizations success. Finding and hiring the best qualified candidate for the job is what pushes your business forward.

Recruitment of candidates for positions in the company is the first step in the training cycle. The process of finding and hiring the best-qualified candidate for a offshore job opening, in a timely and cost effective manner can be a challenging task. Seagull has developed tools to overcome such challenges; these tools are a part of our entire competence management system targeted at the offshore and maritime industry. Our goal is that YOU find the BEST candidate for the job.

Crew Evaluation System (CES) 

CES is a knowledge database with more than 5000 multiple choice questions, specific to management, operations and support. Questions in the database can also be customized to a company's own specific needs via the CES test editor tool. Since CES is an online tool a test can be accessed online from any of your offices around the world, making it easy to use for applicants no matter where they are located, whilst results still are easily available for HR departments.

Ability Profiling (APRO)

The Ability Profiling program (APRO) is a psychometric assessment program developed to be used as a support tool during recruitment of junior crew and the screening of students for studies. APRO was developed in a research and development program headed by the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute and was supported by University of Oslo, DNV, and the shipping industry.

Career development

To have a plan is always important. It can make a difference both in operation and in safety matters. Career planning motivates your employees to reach goals and aim higher. Who stayed on track and are ready for promotion? This is ultimately the essence of a career plan.

Career development - exploration & commitment

Because organizations have to stay current in technology, business practices, and in advances in their industry, an organization that embraces career development processes can keep employees informed of advancements and maintain their competitive edge in the market.

It is important to provide a clear path for each empoyee, encouraging them to aim for the next step on the career ladder. This must be clearly defined and easy to follow. It is important that your staff ’s time is used as efficiently as possible and only the individuals training are clearly defined for their next rank step.

Career planning and competence management has becomes an increasing important strategy for many offshore companies to quality assure that the employees are properly trained and verified to be competent before promoted.

Training is Value! In the long term, it is not what is spent on training, it is what could be lost if you do not. In fact, every $1 spent on training results in $30 increased productivity – IBM Value of Training, 2014.


Competent people make the difference.

Competent, experienced and well-trained crew make the installation safe. It is important that we do all we can to provide the industry with well educated, trained and motivated employees. Otherwise the whole system will collapse.
