From 2006 to 2007 Tim was lucky enough to spend two years as a deckhand on MY Sai Ram and My Leander, two excellent charter yachts. After leaving yachting Tim moved up to London for a career in recruitment. Predominantly working in the financial and banking sector supplying everything from AVPs to Managing Directors for many clients including Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Barclays and Thomson Reuters, Tim decided to set up a crew agency which utilised the recruitment model used in high end recruitment in London and adapting it to the yachting industry. Quay Crew was formed in 2013 and is proving to be a great success. Tim covers the deck department predominantly working on Captain and Officer roles.
