Cherry Wilson

Senior Consultant - Seagoing

About Cherry

I manage the recruitment for seagoing personnel within our marine & shipping division. I work with all types of ship owners/ managers, covering all aspects of the seagoing market. I place all ranks of seafarers on board various vessels working around the globe in both permanent and contract positions. I find my work extremely interesting and it is great to be involved in such exciting projects. 

I have been in recruitment for over five years, starting my career recruiting for assembly/ production personnel based on-site at a prestigious cosmetic company. After this, I joined a new company to focus on seagoing recruitment and became very interested in the maritime world. I knew I wanted to continue learning and developing my career within this industry.

Three words that describe my approach:

Friendly, positive, determined.

Something about me

I trained full time as a synchronised swimmer where I was national champion three years in a row for my age, and was also selected to be part of the Great Britain synchronised swimming team from the age of 12. I travelled around the world competing at various competitions including the World Championships. I was also selected to travel to the 2008 Beijing Olympics as part of the hopeful’s squad for the London 2012 Olympics. 

My favourite food is Sushi and I love going out for dinner (a little too much!).
