Marinescence' strengths

Our consultants have a perfect knowledge of the market and an operational approach to recruitment as they have been evolving within the yachting industry.

Nicolas Pelisson is a dynamic man who created and launched Marinescence in 2007.

He put all his efforts, courage and determination doing it. Thanks to his experience as a sailor, he got to understand and learn about the yachting industry from the inside. He was in contact with various Captains and shipowners allowing him to gain more and more experience each day. Therefore, he has now a general overview of the backstage.

Of course, his passion for sailing and human beings and, human ressources by inference lead him to a larger ambition. And this is exactly how he decided to give birth to Marinescence.

One of the most frequently asked questions is generally “Why did you decide to establish your premises in Vallauris?”.
We like to think that Vallauris is a strategic geographical location as it is equidistant from the major ports and close to the motorway access, close to the airport too.

Having always encouraged sports practice as a former instructor, Nicolas Pelisson aims to share values standing around positive attitude, being detailed oriented and flexible. Indeed, we believe that our adaptation allows us to focus on various expectations and answer our candidate’s and customer’s needs. We also keep in mind that we are dealing with humans and that humans must remain at the center overall.

One of our strengths is to constantly question ourselves.
The Marinescence’ crew agency kept growing over the last past years and is now expanding. First of all, with another branch named Marinescence Media which can be defined as a creative studio, creating websites, finding all sorts of digital solutions and marketing strategies for our customers. Second of all, Marinescence is also moving forward and has started to expand its recruitment expertise within the yachting industry to land based position.

Our team is growing more and more each year.
