Maritimo In International Hunt For Highly Skilled Employees
Maritimo Wants You! – That’s the message that Australia’s leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo is spreading throughout Australia and New Zealand as it seeks to significantly increase its workforce to meet unprecedented demand for its luxury boats.
Riding a wave of success that has seen it sell luxury motor yachts worth many tens of millions of dollars this year the Gold Coast based company is expanding its facilities and production capacity.
CEO Garth Corbitt said with the production pipeline now stretching out to 2020, the company’s supply capacity requires ramping up to meet demand.
“We have had a phenomenal year with tremendous sales success and the task at hand now is to get the boats built,” he said. “We have steadily increased our workforce over the year, but we are still employing at all fields within the manufacturing areas of the company.”
Maritimo’s Production Manager, Kym Fleet, said Maritimo needs experienced and motivated people with a minimum of three years experience in the industry.
“We are employing high skilled people in lamination, cabinet making, fit-out, engineering, varnish and stainless fabrication, all of whom we desire a keen eye and attention to detail,” he said. “We are putting out the word throughout Australia and also in New Zealand.”
“Successful applicants will be working in our Coomera based manufacturing facility on the Gold Coast and they will be part of a team producing the country’s leading state of the art luxury motor yachts that are in demand around the globe.”
He said the Gold Coast was Australia’s sixth largest city and the largest non-capital with an enviable lifestyle and annual tourism visitors exceeding 12 million people. “The allure of the Gold Coast’s lifestyle with its 57 kilometres of pristine coastline, 260 kilometres of navigable waterways and relatively small population base of approximately 576,000 people makes it one of the best places in the world to live,” said Fleet.
“The Gold Coast has established itself as the natural hub for the country’s marine industry and in terms of global livability standards we rank right up there so the opportunity to join Maritimo and enjoy such a lifestyle is something we believe will be very attractive to interstate and overseas residents.”
Maritimo will continue its hiring campaign until the appropriate numbers are met.
