Legal and insurance - the foundations of Spinnaker

29 July 2016


Winners of Best Shipping Recruitment Agency 2016 (Tradefinance Global); that’s how we like to be perceived in the forever growing world of recruitment. Spinnaker Global is well known in maritime but did you know that legal and insurance recruitment is where it all began?

In 1997 Spinnaker’s founders Phil Parry and Steve Cox envisioned a recruitment agency that would encompass both tenacity and integrity, tapping into shipping, where there was a gap in the market for a niche recruiter. As a Qualified Maritime Solicitor and a Barrister respectively, they began to build a successful reputation in the legal and insurance market. Spinnaker’s first placements reflect this, and while we have grown to diversify into other areas such as technical marine recruitment, sales and marketing and renewables, legal and insurance is still very much a big part of what we do.

Over the last 19 years we have successfully placed a large number of candidates in the maritime industry across Private Practice, P&I, insurance and in-house roles in Europe, the Far East, the Middle East, North & South America and Africa. Spinnaker really is global!

We pride ourselves on the relationships we have with both clients and candidates, and regularly attend networking events and seminars to ensure that we are well equipped with the knowledge needed in this competitive market. We also have a dedicated team trained specifically to focus on legal and insurance roles in the marine and energy sectors who are on hand to assist you in your recruitment needs. Whether you are a candidate looking for your next role or a client looking to fill one, we can help!

As Spinnaker edges ever closer to the big 20, we are still very much on top. Please continue the journey with us as we regularly update you with market observations and new vacancies!
