Cherry Wilson

Head of Maritime

About Cherry

I specialise in the recruitment for all marine & shipping personnel across the various sectors within the maritime industry. This includes recruiting for seagoing, technical and commercial positions worldwide.

My main expertise is recruiting for seagoing personnel, placing for all ranks of seafarers on board various vessel types in permanent and contract positions. I have recruited personnel to work on different types of ships around the world and find this extremely interesting.

I have been in recruitment for five years now, 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 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!).
