“I have worked with Linda and Effective Placements for several years, whenever I have needed crew.  Linda is extremely attentive and easy to work with.  She will only send candidates who she feels will fit the existing crew, the boats program and its owners.  She goes to great lengths when interviewing candidates to ensure that they are the right fit.  Linda is always available and very quick to respond to any request I might have.  I highly recommend Effective Placements for your crew placement needs.” 
Captain Mark Downes M/Y Qing and previously M/Y Plan B 


"Linda at Effective Placements has a fantastic approach when it comes to recruiting in a way like a Head Hunter. She takes the time to get to know you and what you are looking for. This is that special personal touch a lot of competitors are lacking where you are just cannon fodder or a number on a system. I have in the industry for 9 years and have only a select few agents I use. I will definitely be adding Effective Placements to that list"

Paul Squires - Head Chef.
