Barcelona Crew welcomes 100 students on board for recruitment days

On the 17th and 18th November, Barcelona Crew welcomed more than 100 students from local schools of hospitality and tourism on board a luxury cruise ship docked in the Port of Barcelona in a promotional tour for crew training and education.

As one of the leading nautical recruitment agencies, Barcelona Crew is the first agency in Barcelona to specialise in recruitment for the tourism, hospitality, superyacht and cruise ship industries.

With over 15 years of experience in crew recruitment and training for luxury superyachts, first-class cruises and nautical tourism, Barcelona Crew places high-quality chefs, stews and stewardesses, deckhands, pursers and bosons on some of the maritime industry’s finest vessels. 

The students, from five prestigious Barcelona schools and universities, were invited on board in order to trial their abilities as perspective crew members for these ultra luxury cruise ships.

As Yachting Pages previously reported, the business is a founding team member of a new professional post-graduate diploma in Nautical Tourism and Cruise, scheduled to commence in January 2015. 

The course will be offered in an exclusive partnership with the EUM Tecnocampus and UPF University of Barcelona, and is the first of its kind in Spain to focus on cruises and nautical tourism.

Taught in both Catalan and Spanish, the much-anticipated course is hoped to improve the standard of maritime tourism professionals within the industry in order to cope with the new needs presented by the sector.
