I was job-hunting for a long time, in heavy competition with equal candidates, and thanks to Alison’s coaching and changes to my CV I got an interview for, and then secured a super yacht Captain’s job I have always dreamed of. She is a really lovely person and I can highly recommend her for your future career development.
While I’m well versed in the various technical aspects of a yacht, I didn’t have a clue how to properly present myself as a newcomer to the field. Your unique perspective of the industry has placed my CV light years ahead of where it was before. I would encourage anybody entering the industry to seek your help.
Alison helps superyacht crew advance their careers and create a life they love by leveraging the incredible opportunities of luxury yachting. She is committed to helping people discover what they are deeply passionate about and truly capable of, and giving them clarity and focus on how to go forth and bring their aspirations to life. With 18 years in the yachting industry, as well as a strong copywriting, sales, and marketing background, she oversees the entire CV turnaround process to ensure your CV is as strong as it can possibly be.
"One day after I received my CV I already found daywork!”
A few months ago I jumped into the unknown and came to Antibes to search for work in the yachting industry. As I was completely new to the industry and had zero experience it was really difficult to find work! Thanks to Alison and the Crew Coach who optimized my CV, I was able to find daywork just one day after I started using my new CV.

"My investment in your services has been repaid manyfold"
 I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for the quality and fantastic CV service you provided to me, as I got my dream job! I have truly died and gone to heaven!! My investment in your services has been repaid manyfold by enabling me to start earning and stop spending much earlier than I would have otherwise and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to crew wanting to get ahead of the competition.



We offer two packages for a professional CV Turnaround service unparallelled in the yachting industry:

“The importance of a good CV is the difference between being considered for a job or not and as such it’s vital to make sure you have a CV that not only stands out but delivers all the information required in a clear and concise way.  Chefs are not always the best when it comes to writing their own CV’s  and understandably so since their skills are focused elsewhere in the kitchen. That’s why we highly recommend The Crew Coach and their CV appraisal services to our candidates along with their other valuable job hunting and career development services.  It is well worth the investment since a powerful CV is a step in the right direction towards getting that dream job.” 

Kate Emery, Amandine International Chef Placement


“What a relief to have finally found a professional service for yachting CVs. Your CV is the bridge between you and your next position, the difference between you getting an interview or not and we have seen the positive results of the Crew Coach time and time again. When we see a CV that has passed through this service we know we can send it out eyes-closed, without having to do the time-wasting check for typos, grammatical mistakes…or having to send it back to the candidate for a complete rewrite. Over the years we have seen many companies who offer this service and the Crew Coach is the only one we recommend to our crew.”

Debbie Blazy, Camper & Nicholsons Crew


Our CV services are recommended by top international Crew Agents

"We have been recommending The Crew Coach’s CV services for years, especially to Captains looking for work. The end goal of this process is of course to secure an interview, to get a Captain sitting in front of an owner, and there is no doubt that The Crew Coach’s CVs are a great door opener. CV writing is a skill and ten seconds is generally all any client will spend reading a CV before deciding whether or not to interview the candidate. It is therefore essential that the CV is to the point, punchy, informative yet concise and well laid out. Easier said than done, when at Captain level one has acquired a lot of experience which is difficult to squeeze into a few pages. We often also encourage Captains for whom English is a second language to use The Crew Coach’s services as they ensure the grammar and wording is spot on. We are working in a high end industry and at senior level, owners expect to see the kind of professionally presented CVs they are used to reading in their corporate environments. We have complete confidence in The Crew Coach’s CV services to achieve great results for our crew.
