WRS renews Marine Personnel provision framework with Van Oord.

Back to Blogs

​In 2018 WRS embarked in a partnership with Van Oord to provide full manpower solutions for Marine crew in all functions across their entire fleet. Established in 1868, Van Oord are a family-owned company with a wide international presence in dredging, offshore, offshore wind and marine contracting. They bring precision engineering expertise to construct offshore wind farms, preparing the world’s seabeds and ocean floors, and to creating new land for a vast array of commercial and public sector projects. Having 150 years of experience as an international marine contractor who value open communication with their partners, we were confident we could meet and hoped to exceed their expectations.

For four years now, we have successfully supported Van Oord’s requirements and supplied manpower to them across all areas of their organisation including global recruitment, payroll, travel, management, and training.

Receiving positive feedback from our clients is always great and that is only surpassed by them choosing to stay with us and renew expiring contracts.

We are delighted therefore to announce that on the 1stof June WRS signed with Van Oord to renew the Marine Personnel provision framework for an unlimited period.

So why were WRS chosen to renew with Van Oord?

Christel van Lent, Manager crewing and visa desk, on behalf of Van Oord said ‘Van Oord Ship Management department recognises Worldwide Recruitment Solutions as a key supplier within the crewing market. We have been dealing with WRS since December 2018 as a unique provider of high quality, temporary nautical crew and we have always found them to be professional, friendly, responsive and reliable. WRS supports Van Oord in our mission to man our assets with marine professionals to ensure operational excellence on our projects. We consider WRS not a simple supplier but a partner and it’s our intention to keep working with them in the future.’

Matthew Spells, Divisional Manager for WRS Marine replied ‘We are proud that Van Oord have renewed our agreement as a Tier 1 supplier for all Maritime Personnel which further strengthens our longstanding partnership and contributes to WRS’s global presence as a leading provider of Offshore Personnel. WRS and Van Oord share many key values and beliefs with regards to personnel quality & safety and we look forward to continuing our work together.’

WRS are thrilled to receive such a fantastic testimonial and excited to continue its partnership with Van Oord helping them achieve their purpose, to contribute to a better world for future generations by delivering Marine ingenuity.
