Estate and Household staff Placements

With over a decade of experience placing high calibre crew on luxury yachts, the idea to transition yacht crew into private households came from growing demand from both yacht owners looking for the same high standards of service on their private estates, and an increasing number of candidates looking to settle down and move ashore.

We pride ourselves on our personal approach to recruitment. We build long term relationships with both Clients and Candidates, thus allowing us to ensure we are placing the right people in the right roles.

Every household is different and every candidate is unique. That is why we take the time to understand you and your household staff requirements, wherever you may be in the world. Whenever possible, we meet with our candidates in person and invest a considerable amount of time getting to know them and determining what makes them unique. We believe that identifying their key qualities such as personality, individual skillset and overall compatibility with a role, is fundamental to building long-term, happy and collaborative partnerships between our candidates and our clients.

We are dedicated to discreet and efficient customer service, and we strive to streamline the recruitment journey from day one. We are rigorous in our approach to screening, checking references and verifying qualifications prior to placing a candidate with a client. We are highly flexible, with a strong ‘can-do’ attitude that enables us to adapt to each client’s needs. We understand what is meant by exceptional service, and we believe that nothing is impossible!
Employees are a company’s greatest asset, which is why we only recruit and supply the best Household Staff.

Milica and Lighthouse Careers offers an excellent, personable and professional service. Following our initial interview, Milica worked tirelessly to secure me rotational Masters role on a SuperYacht, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to fellow Captains.

I have known Milica for over a decade. In that time I have come to value her judgement and advice on Crew Recruitment. She has placed a number of candidates on my commands and she has also helped me secure my dream job! We have always had an excellent working relationship and I feel if I was more of an Antibes based Captain we would have been very good friends. I feel that she is discreet, honest and professional and that she will take this new venture on to become a reliable Crew Recruitment tool for any professional Captain.

I wanted to say a few words of thanks for your all your time and efforts over the past few years, working on behalf of Axioma and indeed the other vessels I have worked on. You and your team has always been a massive help in trying to help find us the right candidate for the right job in this ever expanding and delicate industry. Crew is such a vital factor in a smooth running yacht, and it is not easy to match the right person with the right boat, so I wholeheartedly appreciate all the effort you all put into going that extra mile to check more references and character than most to ensure that the candidate fits in all aspects – this makes the world of difference in reducing crew turnover from our side. It is also refreshing to have an agent who puts forward only a select few CVs that are carefully chosen rather than mass emailing any CV you have on file, that seems to be so common these days! I look forward to continue working with you and your team for years to come

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Milica, and using Milica’s services as a crew agent for many years at two different agencies. Her attention to what I’m looking for in a crew member, fast response and flexibility and understanding of feedback has always impressed me, and I look forward to continuing working with her also now when branching out on her own.

Milica is always my first call when looking for new crew. Milica helped me get my first command 3 years ago and ever since has supplied me with great candidates for all positions onboard. I can always rely on her judgement and honesty on potential crew and to act fast when I need. I wish her luck with this new venture and look forward to a continued professional affiliation.

Milica and I have known each other for several years. She never dropped her standards of recruitment over the time. Due to her industry knowledge, great candidates she has provided over the years and great sense of urgency and limitations a yacht can have, I decided to reintroduce and appoint Milica’s agency to represent our fleet of yachts in the yacht recruitment world. In no time she gained a thorough understanding of our new management structure and fleet needs. Having closely monitored her interactions with my on board teams before and during the summer season, it has certainly proved to be a great appointment. The comms between the management teams on board and herself were outstanding. I was running a very challenging operation and Milica and her team stood by my side and assisted me and my teams on board in all crewing needs with urgency, diplomacy and integrity, often saving the day. I mostly appreciated Milica’s honesty and integrity. She naturally understood the caliber of candidates we needed. She helped putting together a whole team for a 120m yacht in a few days! She has always been fully open to blunt and direct feedback and moved on to the next challenge. I did appreciate our open communication and ultimate respect for each other’s work. Milica’s knowledge, book of candidates, flexibility and full availability were much appreciated. Her team reflects this of course and they my full recommendation.

During current times where communication has become more and more technology-centric, Lighthouse Careers approach to call and speak one-on-one made them stand out from other Agencies. Their genuine approach and time took to sincerely listen and understand both candidates’ individual career goals, history and skillset, and the Employer’s needs, requirements and onboard crew culture resulted in a very successful match on all fronts. After securing me a new Chief stewardess role, Lighthouse Careers attention and care for detail were further reflected in presenting only high calibre candidates for that satisfied our search criteria, resulting in further successful crew placements onboard. The quality and service received from lighthouse Careers have now ensured that they are the first and often only Agency we call.

Milica placed me on my first yacht when I joined the industry, matching my land-based experience perfectly with the vessel. Since then, she has supported my career and seen me move to Chief Stewardess working within larger operations. She can always be relied on to send well-vetted, position-appropriate candidates. Her experience with, and knowledge of the 100m+ market, along with her focus on quality means she is the first person I call when I am looking for a role or crew.

Throughout my 11 years in yachting, I have found Milica to be my go-to agent for jobs. Not only because she has a great reputation in the industry and great boats in her books but also for her care, kindness and professionalism. Very grateful to Milica for my placement onboard a very successful charter yacht during these uncertain times!

Milica and I go back for nearly 7 years to the times when I started my journey in the yachting industry. During this time, we have been able to assist each other on various cases and tables have turned few times, depending on me looking for a new challenge (Project Sasha) or recruiting my own team (M/Y Mirgab VI, M/Y Maryah, M/Y Areti). Milica has always treated my staff requests with uttermost confidence and care. Not only she has found me some fantastic people to work with but we have also managed to handle sensitive situations with respect and dignity. I believe the essence of a good recruiting agent is to actually listen to both sides and assure that is the right fit, the base for this is, of course, taking the time to get to know the people you are working with. This is the skill that Milica masters very well. By following these principles, our connection has grown from a random CV in a database of a crew agent to a friendship over a nice glass of wine!

I would like to express mine at most gratitude for the placement of my current position as Interior Manager on a 100+ m yacht. All was well organised and monitored from your side. Great communication between the yacht, yourself and me. Everything was handled with confidentiality on every level. Therefore, I would like to continue working with you for all current and future crew hiring. I always get a quick response at any time of the day, evenings and on weekends. Very professional, fast, and efficient service! Many thanks for the past few years and many more to come.
