YPI Crew expands in Antibes

ADVERTISEMENT

Yacht recruitment agency YPI Crew has opened a second office in Antibes.

Its current office on Avenue de la Liberation has seen a 68% increase in job requests since it opened in 2013, according to the company.

This growth has necessitated a second office and additional staff. The company is recruiting three more people for the main office, while also adding two staff to the interior department.

“The interior team has gone from strength to strength,” said Helen Papamichael, who leads the department. “Sourcing new talent is key to the chef and stew department, which has evolved so much since I started in 2002.”

YPI Crew had an office around the corner on rue Honore Ferrare, which it bought in 2009. When that office became too small, a tenant was found and operations were moved in 2013 to the current office. That original office was reclaimed in April as a home for the engineer recruitment team, led by Jacqui Young, who joined the company in 2006.

“It is a real milestone to re-open the office now for the Engineering Department,” Young stated in a company press release. “We look forward to expanding the team and welcoming our clients to our new ‘control room.’”
