Aggressor Employment Advantages
Aggressor's employment section is designed to provide candidates with critical information and streamline the hiring process. All Aggressor Liveaboards®, Aggressor River Cruises® and Aggressor Safari Lodges® are individually owned and operated and each owner conducts their own hiring. When you apply for a position, your complete package will be uploaded through our website in one central place for owners to review. A final offer of employment will be made to you by the specific owner.
Aggressor Adventures® has destinations all over the world. The yachts, river cruises and safari lodges are large, luxurious, and they offer an exciting adventure. Every week staff are on a never-ending quest to improve and perfect the service experienced by Aggressor guests. The bar starts high and only moves higher. We’ve been at it for more than 35 years but know that there is always room for improvement.
A lot of time and effort is put into selecting qualified and motivated staff. Owners look for staff with hotel and/or restaurant management training and experience, skills and training in the culinary arts, as well as those with creativity in the visual arts such as photography and videography. Each yacht, river cruise and safari lodge boasts a team of self-motivated, service professionals who are willing to do what it takes each and every week to ensure guests have an Adventure of Lifetime®. While staff may arrive specializing in one facet of the operation, after a short time onboard, cross-training commences, and new experiences are introduced.
Aggressor offers benefits such as job mobility, employment stability, career growth and advancement as well as travel benefits to other yachts, river cruises and safari lodges. We are a global family where everybody is welcome. Staff are men and women hailing from many countries around the world and represent many cultures.
We offer over 30 destinations across the globe with liveaboards, safari lodges and river cruises. This means that there is the opportunity for staff to work in various parts of the world throughout their career.
After you have worked for one year, you are eligible to visit as a guest other Aggressor liveaboards, safari lodges and river cruises. We highly value the cross-training and destination knowledge of staff and encourage this activity.
We are the largest Liveaboard fleet in the world. We literally wrote the book on how to conduct liveaboard diving. Many of the yacht owners still work side by side with staff every day – many of whom have been working with the fleets for over 30 years.
The key to success is operating under a very strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) manual. Because of this standardization, staff can “learn the system” with our three brands, then if an opportunity for advancement opens, they may apply for that position.
