Spinnaker named Best Shipping Recruitment Agency

Spinnaker is delighted to have been voted ‘Best Shipping Recruitment Agency’ in the Trade Finance Global Awards.

Since 1997, we’ve strived for excellence in our maritime recruitment business, so it’s an honour to have been voted for such an award.

James Sinclair, Trade Finance Global editor said:

Shipping needs to be protected; it’s involves 90% of the world’s trade and is a key driver in our economy. There is a maritime skills gap, a need to reform the UK shipping register, and invest in seafarer training, if the UK wants to maintain its stronghold and boost the UK’s multi-billion pound shipping industry.

We were proud to nominate winners across our categories this year. It’s been a pleasure for the judging panel reading independent reviews, talking to experts in the sector, and reviewing websites.

“It’s good to see that digital is driving innovation and competition, which is why we have awarded shipping companies who are striving for digital excellence. Trade finance is a growing industry and we really support shipping companies driving this.”

We’re also very pleased to see Shipping Professional Network London (SPNL) named ‘Best Shipping Network’ – we have been a collaborator with SPNL as their Recruitment Partner for many years and are strong believers in networking within the shipping community.

Big thanks to Trade Finance Global for our award, and congratulations to all the other winners. You can find out more about the awards at
