Our Partners

Navigating to Excellence

Our mission reflects the belief that Viking exists primarily to meet the needs and demands of the maritime industry worldwide. We are committed to excellence and customer service and are justifiably proud of our reputation as a consistently dependable source of quality individuals to the marine sector.

The commitment to excellence was originally endorsed by our approval by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance with a Quality Management System Standard for “Crew management services to the merchant navy, the wider marine industry and the commercial sector incorporating the requirements of the ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) where applicable.” Our attainment of the latest certificate of approval reference BS EN ISO 9001:2008 is an achievement that few companies in similar areas of business have been awarded.

Through the years, Viking Recruitment and UPL have navigated the challenges of the maritime sector together, adapting to changes in regulations, advancements in technology, and the shifting dynamics of the global shipping industry. Their collaborative efforts extend beyond mere recruitment to encompass comprehensive crew management solutions, ensuring that seafarers are not only placed in suitable roles but also supported throughout their maritime careers. 

In an industry where the human element is paramount, the partnership between Viking Recruitment and UPL recognizes the significance of skilled and motivated seafarers in the success of maritime operations. The synergy between the recruitment expertise of Viking and the manning prowess of UPL has created a seamless pipeline connecting talented individuals with reputable shipping companies, contributing to the overall efficiency and excellence of the maritime workforce. 

As Viking Recruitment and UPL continue to navigate the ever-changing seas of the maritime industry, their partnership remains steadfast, grounded in shared values, mutual respect, and a commitment to elevating the standards of maritime recruitment and crew management. This historical collaboration is not just a testament to their past achievements but also a promising harbinger of a future where skilled seafarers and industry-leading recruitment services continue to shape the maritime landscape.
