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.

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.

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!
