The Personnel Services team at MMH has had a busy and exciting past few weeks, reporting greatly increased activity in Las Palmas for reactivation of rigs, which leads to more requests for personnel coming in on a daily basis. We are also projecting an increase in upcoming work in Africa in the coming weeks.
Everyone working in Personnel Services here at MMH knows that if you are operating in the marine sector, you’re essentially involved in a global operation. This means that you need the capacity to manage an international team, round-the-clock, handling all sorts of logistical and administrative duties. Operating such a team within your enterprise is expensive and is unlikely to be cost-effective.
This is why MMH offers a range of personnel services that allow you to offload such needs on our experienced and professional team.
As a result, you are at liberty to focus on your core operations whilst we handle the transport, accommodation, and overall well being of your crew, or crews.
There are a number of different ways in which our personnel services can be of value to your organisation.
Below are some of the most common requests we receive. We invite you to get in touch with us should you need any additional information or support.
We have been living in a globalised world for years, but Covid-19 has shown how quickly everything can change. Crew change planning and rotations have become a more demanding challenge ever since different regions introduced a variety of rules and testing requirements.
Fortunately, our team is equipped to take on these challenges head-on.
For years, we have taken on the responsibility for crew scheduling for a number of oil and gas industry players.
From booking flights and accommodation to preparing the necessary administrative documents for both on-signing crew and off-signing crew members, we know what it takes to have smooth-running operations, globally.
Since we launched over 20 years ago, we have handled crew scheduling across the Mediterranean, as well as the Gulf of Mexico, Africa, the US, and Brazil.
Our team stays up to date with the latest legislation and rules, ensuring that the crew have a seamless experience with minimal delays.
Medical compliance checks
We have the capacity and capability to vet your crew and ensure that they hold the necessary medical certifications required to operate on-board as well as enter certain countries.
When such assessment is required, we can provide assistance through a network of medical centres and professionals located around the globe.
Logistics and administration
When you need to get part of your team from one side of the planet to another, they need to travel with their luggage and equipment.
Within our team, there are several logistical experts that can plan efficient routes that fulfil your needs and particular challenges.
Whether you’re looking to organise meet and greets along the way or require overnight accommodation in particular cities, we have the skills to make it happen.
Whilst part of the team is focused on logistics, another part can handle all your staff administration needs.
These include payroll services, such as handling payments to off-signing crew. We also have the necessary knowledge to support or handle all visa, residency, and work permit applications.
Recruitment and training
One of our sought-after personnel services includes the vetting and selection of vacancy candidates.
On several occasions, we have been entrusted to manage the entire recruitment process on behalf of our clients. This meant handling all aspects of CV selection, interviews, negotiations, and hiring.
Beyond recruitment, we can also help you organise the necessary training to keep your team in compliance with safety standards and update them with the latest best practices.
We are here whenever you need us
The maritime industry never stops, and this is why we offer our services 24/7.
Apart from providing round-the-clock emergency response services to all our clients, we can ensure that we have the resources necessary to support your operations whenever you need them.
