Hi, I'm Ashleigh.
I live by the beach in Cape Town, South Africa. I have always been a lover of the ocean, travel and new experiences so joining the yachting industry after getting a degree in HR was a definite must for me. I spent three years working as a Stewardess, in that time I was also a Solo stew and a Second stewardess and loved every minute of it and gaining more knowledge about the industry dynamics.
When I returned home I worked at a recruitment company as well as started my own business as a Mindset Coach empowering females to thrive professionally and personally. I missed the recruitment side of things and came across YOA when I was looking for a position to join the right team.
I really love YOAs approach and how personalised the experience is when placing crew members and making sure they are the right fit for the boat and that the boat is the right fit for the crew member. This is definitely a unique process that creates longevity and I wish I had come across this agency during my time in yachting. 
By combining my knowledge and previous experience in both the yachting and recruitment industry, I look forward to helping you find the perfect candidate to join your team or help you as a candidate find a great boat to progress in your yachting career.
