Work for us


Spinnaker is a company with a global presence situated in Leigh-on-Sea, which means we are lucky enough to work by the coast. It's the perfect combination: a great career in a vibrant office environment, but without the commute to London.

Leigh-on-Sea, a town in the borough of Southend-on-Sea, has been named the 'Coolest Place in Britain to Live' in the Times newspaper and 'Happiest Place to Live in the UK' by Rightmove, and not without reason. A vibrant fishing town, Leigh is buzzing with independent businesses, boutiques, cafes and parks, with several beaches close by.

Spinnaker's proximity to the coast means we have a great connection to the Thames Estuary, which sees container ships and cargo vessels sailing by on a daily basis. As shipping is our business, being so close to ports such as the London Gateway puts our work into context. We even have sea views from our boardroom!

Our company has various departments:

  • Specialist recruitment and Executive Search, sourcing and placing people in shore-based shipping jobs all over the world;
  • HR Consulting, the maritime HR experts who provide salary benchmarking insight to the global maritime industry, along with people management and development programmes; and
  • the Operations department which keep everything running smoothly.
