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.

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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.
